In recognition of the many benefits of reuse, Morgan Hill, South County and Gilroy will be holding our 15th Annual "Second Chance Week" September 9th through the 17th, 2017. Starting with the popular Gilroy Citywide Garage Sale on September 9th & 10th, 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 16th & 17th.

With the goal of putting more used stuff back into circulation and keeping it out of landfills, "Second Chance Week" features a diverse range of innovative Reuse, Resale and Repair activities. This year's events include:

  •    The popular South County Community-Wide Garage Sale
