Do you have stuff that you would like to sell at a garage sale, but can’t host one of your own? Then you’ll want to take part in the latest Trunk Sale at Okanagan College, Saturday September 27th. Organized by the Regional Waste Reduction Office, the event promotes’ reuse and recycling, with one huge garage sale in the Okanagan College parking lot from 8am until noon.

“Think of this as a giant yard sale on wheels!” says Rae Stewart, Waste Reduction Facilitator with the Regional District. ”It’s a great opportunity to get your pre-loved stuff into the hands of someone else that could use it. Our Trunk Sales are all about reuse, bargains, and less ending up in the landfill.”

Stewart explains, “This is an opportunity for people who wouldn’t normally be able to host their own garage or yard sale, those that live in condos, apartments, or simply have no yard. But it’s not limited in that way, everyone’s welcome to take part.”

Stewart adds previous sales have been hugely popular, with spots for sellers filling up quickly, so you’re encouraged to pre-register early. “Just as the name suggests, you do the selling from the trunk of your car, van or back of your pickup. There’s no charge to be a vendor, but you need to pre-register beforehand.”

Deadline for registrations is Wednesday September 24th. To register as a vendor, please call the Regional Waste Reduction Office at 250.469.6250.

If you don’t want to sell stuff at the Trunk Sale, but love bargains, you’re encouraged to come out and shop on sale day. The Trunk Sale runs from 8am until 12 pm Saturday, September 27th in parking Lot #17 of Okanagan College, 1000 K.L.O. Road, right next to the Student Residence buildings.
