Saturday, 23 September 2017.

There are a number of ways to get involved in the Biggest Day of Garage Sales. You could simply register to hold your own garage sale, or you could round up the neighbours, and hold a joint street garage sale. Make sure you let us know if you are holding a street or community garage sale, or if you are selling something extra special by emailing us at [email protected] or by using our Facebook page to draw people to your garage sale..

Where will it be held:
All along the North Coast of NSW in the participating Council areas of:

  • Ballina Shire
  • Byron Shire
  • Clarence Valley
  • Kyogle
  • Lismore City
  • Richmond Valley
  • Tweed Shire

Why get involved:
Second Hand Saturday helps to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, enables residents to participate in the promotion of reuse and repair, and engage them in an environmentally, socially and economically rewarding activity. This will be the 9th Second Hand Saturday event NE Waste has coordinated since 2006. Last time it was held in 2016, more than 800 people registered to hold garage sales across the region.

A list of participating Second Hand Saturday garage sale addresses will be published FREE OF CHARGE from the 21 September here on-line at www.secondhandsaturday.com.au .

We also have a search app and map to make it super easy for shoppers to find the garage sale that has their wanted treasure.



Yes! Absolutely.

For shoppers, October is buy nothing new month, so here's the perfect excuse to do some guilt free shopping at a fraction of the cost of new products. You can shop till you drop on Saturday 23rd September, and literally you'll just need to stumble out of bed and around the corner to find a garage sale if last year's numbers are anything to go by. If you want to make the most of the day and thoroughly plan your route, then grab your local participating paper or use the search app and map available here from the 21 September.

A Grand Day Out:

we ventured out to many garage sales in The Green House van last year, with our resource recovery expert and garage sale lover P.E.T. Here are some photos from our adventures with some of the treasures we found along the way.
