Anyone wanting to rid themselves of unwanted belongings and make a buck in the process can set up shop at Geraldton’s Spring Trash and Treasure event this Saturday.

Run by the City of Greater Geraldton, the new event aims to encourage reuse and recycling while reducing waste.

It will be held at the QEII Seniors and Community Centre from 9am to noon.

Stalls can be set up inside or outside the centre, with free trestles and chairs provided and spaces for cars and trailers available.

Recycling bins will be provided for disposing of any unsold items.

There will also be entertainment, kids’ activities and food onsite.

A $10 fee applies to stallholders.

Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said the event was modelled on old-fashioned car boot sales.

“We are hoping this will give many of our community members the opportunity for their things to be reused and not end up in landfill,” he said.

Stallholders must fill in an online booking form at cgg.wa.gov.au/play/whats-on/spring-trash-and-treasure.aspx by the close of business today.
