Turn your trash into cash

FOLLOWING last year's success the region's biggest garage sale, Second-hand Saturday, is happening again.

Last year, more than 100 homes in the Clarence Valley took part in the initiative - turning old clothes, appliances and furniture into cash.

The event is co-ordinated by Clarence Valley Council and the North East Waste Forum.

NEWF education co-ordinator Linda Tohver said Second-hand Saturday - to be held on October 15 - was the biggest day of garage sales on the North Coast.

"It's a fantastic opportunity to make some extra cash before Christmas and you don't have to pay a cent to participate," she said.

"In fact, we'll give you free promotion and listing of your garage sale in the local papers."

To register, go to northeast wasteforum.org.au or call Clarence Valley Council on 6643 0200. Registrations close 4pm next Wednesday.
