SCENIC Rim households, schools and community groups are set to join more than 400,000 people across Australia as they cash in on the Garage Sale Trail on the weekend of October 19 to 20.

Scenic Rim Regional Council is one of 140 councils nationwide supporting the multi award-winning community and sustainability event which is now in its ninth year.

Registration for the Garage Sale Trail is free and opened on Saturday for households, schools, community groups and anyone who wants to turn their trash to cash while decluttering.

Scenic Rim mayor Greg Christensen encouraged residents to get on the bandwagon with the trail and register their sale.

"Garage Sale Trail presents a fun and social way for council to encourage reusing and help educate the community about the impact we can all make when we buy second hand or recycle," he said.

"At the end of the day, we need to take responsibility for the waste we create.

"The trail provides a way to meet your neighbours and connect with the broader community whilst also decluttering and raising money for yourself or a local charity.

"We're pleased to be involved in this grassroots national event, as reducing waste and bringing community together are priorities for both council and Scenic Rim residents.

"This year's event is expected to involve more Australians than ever before and we hope that there will be many more from the Scenic Rim as well."

The first 1250 sellers, from across Australia, who register before Tuesday, September 10 will receive a free seller pack including posters and price tags.

Event organisers project that more than two million items nationally will be listed for sale and reuse.
