Garage Sale Port Coquitlam Coquitlam Port Moody

With warmer days here in full force, many of us are doing some serious spring cleaning and de-cluttering. But with tight garbage limits, what do you do with the stuff you no longer want anymore? Local municipalities have the answer: city wide garage sales. You can turn your trash into someone else’s treasure, and make a little bit of money at the same time. Plus, the city will advertise the event, which means free promotion. What’s not to love?
