View Full Version : CITY WIDE Garage Sale

08-20-2007, 01:10 PM
The city-wide garage sale is scheduled for Sept. 15 and Zion will donate all its profits to ARCH.

Anyone wishing to participate in the "World's Largest Garage Sale,'' can obtain a registration form on the City of Sault Ste. Marie website (www.cityssm.on.ca) under Forms and Maps.

The forms also are available at the ARCH office, 25 King St., weekdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Proceeds from the $20 registration fee go to the hospice.

Registrants receive a lime green T-shirt, a garage sale sign and will have their address published in a list of event participants.

Any items that don't sell during the sale don't have to go back into the house, garage or shed.

On Sunday (Sept. 16) there will be a city-wide "free-cycle" day.

"You can leave them at the side of the curb for people to pick up,'' says Butland.

And if there are still leftovers after treasure hunters finish scrounging, they can be dropped off at the city landfill at no cost during the week of Sept. 17.

Change of Free dump details as posted at http://www.sootoday.com/content/green/details.asp?c=20131 Sept 7, 2007:

Free week at City landfill site - September 17

SAULT STE. MARIE, ON - The City of Sault Ste. Marie Public Works Department has traditionally waived the landfill gate fee for one week in the spring and one week in the fall as a public service to the community.

The waived gate fee week originally scheduled for the week of September 10, 2007 will be moved to the week of September 17 to co-ordinate with the World’s Largest Garage Sale event.

The aim of the World’s Largest Garage Sale is to have as many curb side garage sales as possible throughout the city on Saturday, September 15.

Sunday, September 16 will be a city-wide “scrounge” or “freecycle” day.

Leave unsold items at the end of your driveway for others to take away for free.

Dispose of any items left over after Saturday’s garage sale and Sunday’s freecyle day between September 17 and 22 when the City is waiving its $6 landfill gate fee for the first 300 kg. of refuse.

Regular fees will apply for loads over 300 kg. (at $.065 per kg.), as well as for refrigerators and tires.

Identification will be requested at the landfill site.

The landfill site is located at 402 Fifth Line East.

Hours of operation are Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Registration forms for the World’s Largest Garage Sale, benefiting Algoma Residential Community Hospice, are available on the City of Sault Ste. Marie website under “Forms and Maps”.

The City of Sault Ste. Marie encourages you to: Reduce – Reuse – Recycle!
