SecondHand Saturday


Leichhardt Council runs SecondHand Saturday each year, a giant neighbourhood garage sale held in individual households.

SecondHand Saturday enables residents to participate in a program that promotes the value of resource conservation and reduced waste to landfill, whilst making a dollar or two and meeting their neighbours.

Thank you to all participating households for saving valuable resources from going to landfill!

Registered households (i.e. those holding a sale on the day) will be advertised in The Courier Tuesday issue and Ciao Magazine. Your garage sale, i.e. street address, will be published on this website in the week of the SecondHand Saturday sale, together with a handy map of garage sale addresses.

PLEASE NOTE: Your General Household Collection dates remain the same as per your yearly waste & recycling calendar. Visit our Waste & Recycling section (see Collection Days) for details or phone Council’s Customer Service Centre for your calendar. Council’s SHS is held 3 times each year via suburbs and is aimed at reuse of items (as opposed to disposal). Therefore your General Household Collection date may NOT align with your SHS event date.
