The last car boot sale at Corrimal

I bet you have a bit of old stuff lying around the home or garage. If you do you should book a site for the May 4 Giant Car Boot Sale at the Towradgi Beach Hotel Car park.

The Giant Car Boot sale is one avenue where you can reduce the amount of pre-loved goods you have and at the same time avoid sending them to landfill.

These Giant Car Boot Sales are a great opportunity to sell or trade unwanted and pre-loved items from around the home. They’re also a fun way to earn extra cash while you Reuse, Repair and Recycle.

Council’s last Car Boot Sale at Spring into Corrimal had 46 sellers who offered a variety of items for sale included matchbox cars, surfboard and snowboard, herb box, old records, board games, curtains, fashion accessories, fishing rods, an old fashioned sewing machine and a telescope. All together through the sale Council diverted nearly nine cubic metres of goods from going to landfill.

Visit Wollongong City Council’s website to register your interest in joining this sale.

The Giant Car Boot Sale will be on Sunday May 4 between 9am – 2pm at Towradgi Beach Hotel Car park. For more information call Council’s Customer Service on (02) 4227 7111.
