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 125 households signed up.
To participate, Port Coquitlam residents simply plan a garage sale at their home on April 22 from at least 9 am to 1 pm, and register online. Online registration is now open.
NEW this year! We are opening up space for those living in a multi residential area that may not have the space or are not permitted to have a garage sale. The space which will be located at the parking lot at Gates Park on Reeve Street between Atkins and Kelly. Space is limited and you must sign up to use this space. Residents who sign up for this space are responsible for their own set up, take down and clean up.
Participants who register by the deadline of April 12, 2017 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.
