The Citywide Garage Sale will not be held in in 2019 due to pressing work of developing new solid waste programs and services for our community.  The staff are currently developing a Zero Waste Plan and new service agreements for collection (hauling), recycling processing, and disposal (landfill) vendors.  The current agreements expire in 2021.  Residents are encouraged to hold their own neighborhood garage sale the first weekend in May or anytime throughout the year.

The Citywide Garage Sale is usually held at homes throughout Mountain View on Saturday with many homes open on Sunday too.  Join hundreds of residents holding garage sales at their homes, rain or shine.  The event is advertised in local and nearby newspapers, websites, and a banner over El Camino Real.  Shoppers can find garage sale addresses and items for sale on the City's website and on printed maps published the day before the sale.  There is no charge to register.  

Community Yard Sale is usually held at Rengstorff Park but is not being held in 2018 and 2019 due to remodeling of the community center.  For more information, contact Recreation at (650) 903-6331.
