City-Wide Garage Sale

The City of Port Coquitlam’s City-wide garage sale gives 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.

The City-Wide Garage sale was held on April 23, 2022.

Turn Trash into Cash

Hold a garage sale with homes across the City and help find a new home for your unwanted but useable items.

The space reserved to host a garage sale in the parking lot at Gates Park (on Reeve Street between Atkins Avenue and Kelly Avenue) is now full. Residents who have signed up for this space are responsible for their own belongings, set up, take down and clean up.

How To Participate

To participate, Port Coquitlam residents simply plan a garage sale at their home from at least 9 am to 1 pm, and register online.

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. We encourage participants to donate leftover items to charity or utilize the City’s Large-Item Pick-up Program.

Participants who register by the deadline 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. You can also put up signs around your neighbourhood to guide shoppers to your home. Click here to download and print a sign!
