City-wide Garage Sale
City-wide-Garage-Sale-recycle-logoThe City of Port Coquitlam’s City-wide garage sale is held annually in April, giving residents a chance to declutter, make some cash and find a new home for reusable items.

Held following Earth Week, the annual event is part of the City’s ongoing waste-reduction efforts. Participants dispose of their unwanted items in an earth-friendly way, while benefiting from the additional bargain hunters drawn out by the large number of garage sales. Last year, over 70 households signed up.





To participate, Port Coquitlam residents simply plan a garage sale at their home on the Garage Sale date from at least 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., and register online.

Participants who register by the deadline will get free advertising for their sale in two City
newspaper ads prior to the event, as well as on the garage sale webpage.

All participants will be responsible for packing up any unsold items, similar to any regular garage
sale. The City will not be picking up unsold items, and instead is encouraging participants to donate
leftover items to charity.

Donate Leftover Items

The City will not be picking up unsold items and encourages residents to donate left over items to charity to benefit those in need and reduce the amount of waste generated.

Several area charities accept donations of household items (please phone ahead regarding larger items).
