Nanaimo Car Trunk Sale 2019

CAR TRUNK SALE 2019Join us for the third annual Nanaimo Recycles Trunk Sale! The sale consists of vendors selling their unwanted items from the trunk of their car to bargain hunters. This free reuse event aims to give unwanted household items a longer lease on life and to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Along side the trunk sale visitors can also:

  • check out our waste collection truck,
  • staff will be on site to answer any questions about the SortTossRoll waste collection program,
  • play our “What Goes Where” sorting game.

Please note: This sale is intended to promote reuse and recycling of unwanted “garage sale” type items. No retail-type booths or sale of new items will be permitted. The only new items permitted for sale are items made from recycled materials.

150 spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Sellers must register in advance to reserve their spot by emailing Public.Worksinfo@nanaimo.ca or contact Public Works @ 250-758-5222.
