Retail Your Rubbish


Retail Your Rubbish is an initiative that encourages the REUSE of household items through an event dedicated to garage sales. The Blakehurst and Kogarah Bay Wards currently receive two (2) scheduled clean-up collections. This means residents are offered clean-ups in zoned areas. We have selected one of these zones and residents residing within this zone will be selling secondhand household items that they would otherwise dispose of in their Kerbside Clean-up Collection Service.


Saturday 21 September 2019. This is the weekend before the scheduled clean-up service for the participating zone. 



At McRaes Reserve, between 8:00am-11:00am, a food truck and coffee van will be stationed alongside Council to kick off the day! Hard copy maps of the garage sales within the area will also be distributed at McRaes Reserve between these times.


  • Grab a bargain by purchasing unique second-hand goods

  • Avoid waste being sent to landfill and improve your environmental footprint

  • Participate in a fun community event

  • It is free to join and Council will help with advertising and attracting buyers to your sale!


Everyone is invited to participate in the event as a buyer – come along, visit a garage sale or two and find a unique pre loved good. Check Council’s website just before the event to ensure you see the final map of participating sales (or visit McRaes Reserve on the day between 8:00am-11:00am).

View the Terms and Conditions to participate in this event.
