IT’S time to register for a coveted car space at Wollongong City Council’s next Giant Car Boot Sale at Towradgi.

The Giant Car Boot Sale will be on Saturday April 14 from 9am-2pm in the car park at Towradgi Beach Hotel. Registrations are due before 5pm, Monday April 8.

The trash and treasure sales are hosted by Council twice a year as a way to encourage people to reduce, reuse and recycle. Car spots are always popular with sellers looking to make some extra money by re-homing everyday items.

Wollongong Lord Mayor Gordon Bradbery is encouraging everyone who is interested in getting involved in the Giant Car Boot Sale to book their spots early.

“At September’s sale we had space for 42 cars, and ended up with 35 cars on the waiting list. There’s no doubt, this is a popular event,” he said.

More than 2500 people came to the Giant Car Boot Sale that was held as part of Spring Into Corrimal celebrations. The most popular items sold included clothes, books, furniture and knickknacks.

People can register by contacting Council’s Customer Service Team, or visiting the website.
