Due to popular demand, Second Hand Sunday is back on Sunday 19 April from 10am to 1pm, and registrations are now open.
Nelson City Council and Tasman District Council support the event
as a practical way for people to pass on items they aren’t
using but aren’t worth selling. Rather than have them taking up space, Second
Hand Sunday encourages people to take the easy option – to clear up their
clutter for free.
More than 305 households took part in 2014 and 93% of respondents
in a post-event survey said they would happily do it again. On average, 80% of
items put out were taken on the day.
People taking part in Second Hand Sunday simply leave unwanted items on their driveway for others to take away
for free. However, households are asked not to put out food, faulty electrical
goods, chemicals or firearms.
Register online at nelson.govt.nz or tasman.govt.nz
using search phrase: Second Hand Sunday. The Councils will publicise the list
of households taking part on the websites and in the Nelson Leader community
newspaper (register before 11:30am, Monday 13 April to make the paper).
On the day (Sunday 19 April):
Put items to give away on your
driveway ready for the 10am start time. When you register, you will be able to
download and print a letterbox poster from the website. You can
also pick up a poster from Council Customer Service Centres to put up on your
letterbox so everyone knows you are taking part in Second Hand Sunday. Anyone
looking for items will be able to download the list of households involved and
take part in their very own treasure hunt. If you have anything left at the end
of the morning (and we hope you won’t), then bring it back inside as it is
still your responsibility.
Second Hand Sunday will take
place come rain or shine! If the weather is bad, it will be up to the
individual householder to decide whether to put their stuff out.
