The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder will be hosting a group sale as part of the national Garage Sale Trail weekend at the Lord Forrest Precinct, Sunday 21 October 2018 from 8.00am to 10.00am.
All members of the community are invited to host a free stall to sell their second hand item. There are 12 stalls booked for the event, with room for plenty more, the morning will also include a breakfast sausage sizzle.
Deputy Mayor Alllan Pendal donned the Garage Sale Trail Blazer to kick off the Kalgoorlie-Boulder event. The colourful creation made from repurposed clothing and fabric by designer Julie Paterson of ScrapClothFabric.
Fast fashion is one of the considerable problems in landfills. Two-thirds of the items sent to landfill are manmade synthetic fibres that won’t break down. Clothing can’t go in your kerbside recycle bin, this is a chance to give your clothing new life and any other household item you no longer need.
City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO said, “It’s a great opportunity to have a garage sale without having to have strangers come to your property. Join the rest of Australia in decluttering your home and make some money while you’re at it.”
Mr Walker added, “The Garage Sale Trail is a fun and social way to encourage reuse and help educate the community about why we all need take responsibility for the waste we generate.”
