HAVE you had a spring clean and want to get rid of some bits and pieces?
Maybe you’ve just got a cupboard full of things that you don’t know what to do with.
Wollongong City Council’s next Giant Car Boot sale is on Sunday September 14 in Corrimal and it’s a great opportunity to turn all those unwanted goods into extra cash.
“The last Giant Car Boot sale was a big success, with more than 800 shoppers braving some pretty ordinary weather to snap up a bargain. This one is shaping up to be even bigger because it’s being held in conjunction with the ‘Spring into Corrimal’ Community festival,” said Council’s Fiona Netting.
Ms Netting said while the Giant Car Boot Sale is a great way for residents to earn some extra cash, there’s environmental benefits too.
“The more items we can reuse and recycle, the less that goes into landfill. At just the last sale alone more than 1800 items – the equivalent of 38 wheelie bins or 9170 litres, found new homes rather than ending up at the tip, which is a great result”.
Registration for the car boot sale is free but places are limited so anyone interested is urged to call Council on 4227 7111 or visit http://www.wollongong.nsw.gov.au to fill out a registration form.
