If you've been wanting to get rid of those unwanted items you've been accumulating, the time has come.
The Garage Sale Trail, supported by 100 local governments, is inviting Bendigo residents to go online and register their home, school or community group's garage sale, to take place on November 21 and 22.
The purpose of the national sustainability initiative is to help residents de-clutter their homes, join in a social activity and raise awareness of the importance of re-using items and keeping unwanted items out of landfill.
City of Greater Bendigo resource recovery and education manager Brooke Pearce said holding a garage sale was a great way to make unwanted items work in your favour.
"The Garage Sale Trail is an opportunity to remind residents about the need to re-use or recycle their unwanted items wherever possible and also make a few dollars in the process," Ms Pearce said.
All garage sales must be conducted in line with current COVID-19 government advice.
There will be aspects of the trail that take place online, where people can host a sale or attend a reuse master class.
"We live in a consumer-driven society but we often outgrow or no longer need much of what we buy, so the Garage Sale Trail is one way to offload some of those items," Ms Pearce said.
This year's trail is being held Australia-wide on the weekend of November 21 and 22.
