The Community Wide Garage Sale in Westland has been rescheduled for July 31 and Aug. 1.
Officials said that the recent major storm event which caused property damage and power outages in the city made the postponement of the annual garage sale necessary. The sale was originally scheduled for July 10 and 11 and residents can now register their sale for free on the city website.
As an added incentive to participate, the city will help promote individual residential locations for free on the city website. Individuals will be able to view an interactive map to locate all of the garage sales in the area as well as search for particular items of interest. Visit www.cityofwestland.com to register a sale or to search for garage sales near you.
“The garage sale interactive map will go live on July 14 at 12 p.m.,” commented Mayor William R. Wild. “The map is a great tool to streamline your shopping day and to promote your sale.”
Residents who do not own a computer can still advertise their sale on the city website by calling Wild's office at (734)467-3200. No garage sale permit needed to participate and registration is not required.
Wayne County has also postponed the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day which was scheduled for July 10. The county will reschedule this event, which will take place in the parking lot of the Westland Shopping Center, at a later date.
