Trunk sales planned for Clearwater, Chase

KAMLOOPS - Do you have previously loved stuff that is in need of a new home? Looking to sell, trade or donate items from your home and would like to do so in a community-wide garage sale?

Now is your chance, as the Thompson-Nicola Regional District is hosting its first two Trunk Sales in October.

Trunk Sales are where vendors sell, trade or donate items directly from their vehicles.

The first one will be held at the Rotary Sports Park/Sportsplex Parking Lot in Clearwater on Saturday, Oct. 3, from 9 a.m. to noon.

The second event will take place at the Art Holding Memorial Arena Parking Lot in Chase on Saturday, Oct. 10, from 9 a.m. to noon.

“The event will help keep usable items out of the landfill,” says Jamie Vieria, Manager of Environmental Services. “Reuse is in the top of the waste reduction hierarchy, and so we hope to promote more reuse in the region.”

Vendors wishing to reserve a space should register by calling Environmental Services at 250-377-8673 or email recyclenow@tnrd.ca. Spaces are limited to two spaces per resident so early registration is recommended.
