Richmond residents are encouraged to register for the first annual Citywide Garage Sale, which is scheduled for Saturday, May 13, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., according to the Richmond City Manager’s weekly newsletter.

The event will follow in the model of the El Cerrito Citywide Garage Sale, which encourages residents to reuse and recycle locally while reducing clutter.

How it works: residents register their households to host a garage sale for a $10 nonrefundable registration fee. The city’s Recreation Division uses that information to create a map of registered households that will be published online at least one week ahead of the event. Shoppers will be able to access the map to find garage sale locations and descriptions. 

To register as a host of a garage sale, you can do so in person by downloading the Citywide Garage Sale Registration Form and bringing it to the Recreation Complex at 3230 Macdonald Avenue. You can also register online on the city’s ActiveNet platform by clicking here.

The deadline to register is April 14.
