Record effort on Garage Sale day

TASMANIANS hit the streets on October 24 for the fifth annual Garage Sale Trail - a day of simultaneous garage sales across the country. The aim is to promote reuse, reduce landfill, build community connections and enable fundraising in a fun and social way.

The event was supported by 21 Tasmanian councils, and 174 councils nationally. Tasmania achieved a record level of participation this year, with 814 stalls registered statewide, and more than 1,822,146 items listed for sale at an estimated value of $1,531,745.  About 20% of the sales were fundraising for a cause.

The Derwent Valley Council emerged as the number one municipal area in the state, based on the number of stalls held on a per capita basis. The municipality also ranked fifth on the national leaderboard.
