THE minds behind the Murwillumbah car boot sale have urged people not to recklessly bin their unwanted household goods.

Rather, they urge people to sell them and support an event which can benefit the community.

Peddlers of the Tweed Valley will be salivating as the bumper car boot sale is set to begin at the Hundred Hills community this weekend.

The event will take place on Sunday, May 20 from 8am until noon, with the Rotary Club of Murwillumbah Central behind the helm. 

The two previous car boot events have been cancelled due to unfavourable weather, so it is expected that local sellers have stocked up a host of items for the big weekend.

Murwillumbah Central Rotary Club president Noel Graham said this week's car boot sale has been greatly anticipated following the two last flops.

"Wet weather forced us to cancel our two recent sales for safety reasons," he said.

"We're pleased and relieved that this Sunday is looking good, we are anticipating a big turnout at Hundred Hills on Sunday morning.

"Money raised will go to charities supported by Murwillumbah Central Rotary Club."

David Laner, Stockland regional manager for the Gold Coast and Northern NSW, said he was in support of the Murwillumbah car boot sale.

"The Murwillumbah Central Rotary Club works hard to raise funds for charity and I'm very pleased that Stockland is able to offer our support in this way," Mr Laner said.

Hundred Hills is on the corner of Riveroak Drive and Old Lismore Road at Murwillumbah, phone 1800 357 194 for more information.
