2016 Garage Sale is Saturday, June 4th

2016 Garage Sale:

As in the past, the annual neighborhood Garage Sale will be held the first weekend of June, which falls on Saturday, June 4th. Although we won’t advertise it, many homes in the neighborhood will also be open Friday. Some of the surrounding neighborhoods share this date so there should be plenty of traffic in the area.

There are no fees to participate. Just open your garage on Saturday. It begins around 8:00 am and runs until about 4:00. Ads will be placed in the Kansas City Star, Sun Tribune Newspapers and Craigslist.  Signs for the garage sale will go up a week prior to the sale.

Neighborhood Dumpster:

Following the Garage Sale, BOHA will once again provide a dumpster on Monday and Tuesday, June 6th and 7th for Brittany Oaks neighbors to use during their spring cleaning projects. The dumpster will be placed in the church parking lot. The dumpster use is for Brittany Oaks Homeowners ONLY. If the dumpster is full on Monday, please don’t continue to overfill it. It will be emptied Tuesday morning and set out again until Wednesday morning.

The dumpster will be monitored. Any “unwelcomed” items will be subject to a $100 fine by the disposal company. Please be careful what you put in the dumpster so we can continue to offer this in the future. Please break down bulky items so space is not wasted in the dumpster.

We ask that all use the following guidelines:

  • No TV’s or computers.
  • No major appliances
  • No tires or batteries
  • No liquid paint, motor oil or fluids
  • No old lawn mowers or engines
  • No brush/yard waste.
