AUSTRALIA’S LARGEST

CREATIVE REUSE CENTRE

reversegarbage.org.au


About Us Reverse Garbage was established in 1974 by a group of teachers determined to help the environment by diverting industrial discards from landfill and by reusing materials in their classrooms.

Almost 40 years later, Reverse Garbage is now an internationally recognised, award-winning environmental co-operative committed to promoting sustainability. Each year Reverse Garbage collects tonnes of resources including reusable off-cuts, over-runs, art & craft materials, stage props, furniture and other items from hundreds of supporting commercial and industrial businesses, as well as through the generosity of the community. These resources are sorted at Reverse Garbage’s Marrickville site and the community is given the opportunity to purchase items for creative use – or ‘reuse’ – using resources to create new items or to give items a new purpose. All sales help to fund our operations and services.

For more information please visit www.reversegarbage.org.au

Donate A not-for-profit co-operative, Reverse Garbage greatly appreciates the support received by business, industry and the community through the donation of materials and resources, otherwise destined for landfill. To make a donation, please visit out website for information on the types of materials we can and cannot take www.reversegarbage.org.au Being a small not-for-profit with limited resources, we would appreciate items to be dropped off to our Marrickville site. Reverse Garbage can, however, arrange to pick up large quantities of materials you wish to donate. Pick ups can be arranged on an ongoing basis for regular donations or as a one-off: info@reversegarbage.org.au
