Residents in one community in Luzerne County will have new rules to follow when holding yard sales.
Monday night officials in Hazle Township approved a new ordinance to regulate such sales.
When it comes to yard sales, it’s like the old saying, “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.”
In Hazle Township several homeowners were taking advantage of just that, setting items out on their lawns, hoping a curious passer-by will lead to a satisfied customer.
Ray Starrick is trying to sell a couch and love seat he no longer needs and said he’s offering a better deal than any store out there. “It’s just that the idea is to get rid of the stuff and help the people out. Nowadays everything is expensive,” said Starrick.
