Second Hand Sunday
Do you have stuff you would like to get rid of but it is too good to put in the rubbish or too bulky to take to your local second-hand store? Then this may be your answer!
The Clutha District Council holds an annual event called Second Hand Sunday (usually held in October).
Second Hand Sunday works like a garage sale, but no money changes hands. For the annual event, you register your address and Council will advertise the participating addresses the week prior.
Then on the day from 9am, people who are participating will have their goods for giveaway out at the gate with a sign that states the items are free to a good home.
And if you forgot to register you can still take part just put out a sign and have you items out at the street by 9am on Sunday (remember not to leave them out overnight).
What else do I need to know?
1. Gather the items you want to give away.
2. Identify a suitable site on your property boundary - e.g. driveway or near your letter box
3. On Sunday from 9.00 am onwards:
- Display the sign on your letter box.
- Place items at the site no earlier than 9.00am.
- At 5pm remove any items left, if they are left outside your property you'll be in breach of a bylaw.
4. Exclusions: No food or dangerous goods, chemicals, faulty electrical equipment, firearms or rubbish.
If you are collecting items:
- Only collect items at households where the Second Hand Sunday poster is displayed.
- Only collect items between the advertised hours.
- We recommend you have electrical items checked to make sure they are safe.
- Do not enter their properties - no one wants to trespass.
