City of Ryde Council has kindly offered the following comments (in blue) relating to garage sales.
(If there is no blue answer on a particular question, then a comment wasn't made.)

  • Are permits required? No.
  • Are there any laws controlling the posting of garage sale signs? No signs are to be displayed on footpaths or nature strips where there is a likelihood a person may trip. Signs are allowed to be placed on powerpoles the morning of the garage sale, however they must be removed at the completion of the garage sale.
  • Are there limits to how many garage sales one person can hold per year? Not exactly, but council will investigate any complaints if there is a belief a resident may be having regular garage sales and basically conducting a business from the premises. The object of a garage sale is principally to clean out unwanted goods, which may be prior to moving or a general tidy up. Council would likely investigate if a person was having 2 or more per month. Council can serve orders if they believe the garage sale is not principally being used to do a general clean out and is being used for business purposes.
  • Are there laws about using the footpath in front of the person's house? Council will not allow items to be stored on the footpath and expects all participants to organise all activities on their private property
  • Other comments offered. Council supports Second Hand Saturday which is held in each area in the week prior to that area's council clean-up.
  • Is there a page on the web site that covers the laws relating to garage sales? There is information on Council's initiative to assist people sell any unwanted items prior to their scheduled clean up (Second Hand Saturday). We don't have specific information on garage sales, however we will assist residents to enable them to do the right thing

1) Laws are always subject to change.
2) If there is any doubt, you need to confirm current council laws.
3) provides this information in good faith, but will not be held liable or responsible for any losses or penalties incurred as a result of changes to, or misinterpretation of, current council laws as amended from time to time.
