Second Chance Week

Doesn't Your Stuff Deserve a 2nd Chance?
In recognition of the many benefits of reuse, Morgan Hill, Gilroy and South County will be holding our 13th annual "2nd Chance Week" September 12th through the 20th, 2015. Starting with the popular Gilroy Citywide Garage Sale on September 12th and 13th, there will be a full week of events designed to give your stuff a second chance. The event ends with the Morgan Hill/South County Citywide Garage Sale on September 19th and 20th.

With the goal of putting more used stuff back into circulation and keeping it out of landfills, "2nd Chance Week" features a diverse range of innovative Reuse, Resale and Repair activities.
This year's events will include:
  • The popular South County Community-Wide Garage Sale
  • Freecycle Day
  • Universal Waste Awareness Day
  • Donate and Shop at Local Thrift Stores Day
  • Donate Coats for Kids and Adults Day
  • 2nd Sight Day - donate used eyeglasses to the Lion's Club
  • Recycle Your Cycle Day - donate old bikes for reuse
