Garage sale event a success in Bundy

ONE man's trash is another man's treasure - that was the theme on Saturday as more than 150 residents took part in the national Garage Sale Trail.

The trail, now in it's fifth year, promotes the reuse and recycling of valuable resources within the community.

Sales were held in households, streets, by community groups, charities and even local businesses.

Daph Geddes Park at Kendalls Flats also played host to a garage sale where the community enjoyed browsing through a range of different stallls.

Waste and Recycling portfolio spokesperson Cr Vince Habermann said he was thrilled with the response from residents.

"It is wonderful to see so many residents throwing their support behind this community event," Cr Habermann said.

"This is a terrific outcome for council, the community and the environment."

The Bundaberg region ranked seventh in Australia on the Garage Sale Trail leaderboard and fourth in Queensland behind Brisbane, Townsville and the Sunshine Coast.
