THE Giant Car Boot Sale comes to Towradgi on Sunday.

Wollongong City Council’s Giant Car Boot sale is an opportunity to uncover a treasure, find a beautiful pre-loved item or score a bargain. It’s also a great way to keep the unwanted and pre-loved household goods out of Council’s tip at Whytes Gully.

Council’s Promotions Coordinator Fiona Netting said: “If you enjoy a relaxed morning full of community spirit and would like to uncover some wonderful clothing, baby goods, sports gear, tools or home furnishings and more, then the Giant Car Boot Sale is a great place to visit.

“You can definitely find a bargain while doing your bit to be kind to the environment by reducing the amount of materials that, sadly, end up in landfill.”

Each year more than 50,000 tonnes of household waste is placed at Council’s Whytes Gully landfill.

What: Council’s Giant Car Boot Sale
Where: Towradgi Beach Hotel carpark, Towradgi
When: Sunday, 7 May 2017, between 9am – 2pm

All community members are invited to drop off any unwanted clothing or Manchester to the Mission Australia collection truck between 9am to 2pm as part of the Giant Car Boot Sale event.

If you can’t make it to the Giant Car Boot Sale but would like to hold your own garage sale, visit Council’s website. For more information call Council’s Customer Service Centre on (02) 4227 7111.
