Garage Sale Ordinance

Effective March 3, 1998

The City of Inglewood has updated the garage/yard sale ordinance (IMC. 5-81.). The code allows for two garage sales per calendar year (a sale is two consecutive days) per household and prohibits the sale of new items. A permit must be obtained at least five days prior to the date of the sale, and must be on display at the site. The permitted hours of operation are between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. The required permit may be obtained for $5 from the Finance Department located at:

Finance Department
City Hall
1 West Manchester Boulevard
1st Floor
Inglewood, CA 90301

For additional information call the Code Enforcement Division at 310-412-5590.

Effective June 15, 1999

As an added convenience to Inglewood residents, effective June 15, 1999, the City Council designated the third weekend of August as an annual citywide garage and yard sale weekend. For this weekend only, residents would be exempt from the aforementioned regulations, which govern garage sales. The City requirement to obtain a permit and pay a $5 fee will also be suspended for this weekend only. Hours of operation, advertising and parking regulations will remain in effect. Residents conducting a garage sale on this weekend will not have the sale counted as one of their two allowable permitted sales annually.
