Check out the garage sale listing happening April 23.
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 100 households signed up.
To participate, Port Coquitlam residents simply plan a garage sale at their home on April 23 from at least 9 am to 1 pm, and register online.
Participants who register by the deadline of April 13, 2016 will get free advertising for their sale in the Tri-City News newspaper ad 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.
