Second Hand Market Comes to Hornsby

Following the success of the popular Car Boot and Clothing Swap markets last year, a second hand market will be coming to Coronation StrEat, Hornsby for the first time on Sunday, 14th April 2024.

The market provides residents with an opportunity to declutter some of their pre-loved items in an environmentally conscious manner, offering others the opportunity to discover thrifty treasures.

The market is part of Council’s Second Hand Hornsby initiative, which also includes an innovative service on Council’s website allowing residents to advertise their garage sales and plan their day of visiting sales across the Shire.

Council is encouraging locals to reduce the number of items sent to landfill, by instead opting to give their unwanted items a new lease on life. Some of the items that will be on offer at the Second Hand Hornsby Market include clothing, toys, furniture, books, sporting equipment and other household items.

Hornsby Shire Council Mayor The Hon Philip Ruddock AO has called on the local community to get involved in the fun-filled initiative. The stalls are already booked out, but you can still play a part in helping conserve Hornsby Shire’s environment.

“I encourage residents to take this fantastic opportunity to come together and experience the fun of second hand markets,” Mayor Ruddock said.

“Buying from one of the stall holders at the Second Hand Hornsby Market is environmentally, socially and financially rewarding, and will reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.”

The Second Hand Hornsby Market will run from 9am-1pm in the car park on Coronation Street and in the new Coronation StrEat space. There will also be a bike repair demonstration at the bike station under the new ghost building structure next to the car park.

Second Hand Hornsby aligns with Council’s Waste Matters Strategy and is part of several initiatives to assist Council achieve its goal of diverting 80 per cent of community waste from landfill by 2030.
