Reverse Garbage

Reverse Garbage Queensland is a not-for-profit worker run co-operative that promotes environmental sustainability and resource reuse. We collect high quality industrial discards, diverting them away from landfill and sell them at a low cost to the general public. We run a variety of environment and waste focused art workshops and educational talks and tours to suit every age and group. We also run a mail order service and host a gallery and gift shop promoting local artists, craft workers and designers who salvage, reuse and up-cycle materials.“

  • Founded in 1974 by a group of educators determined to help the environment and reuse materials and resources for their classrooms.
  • Today, Reverse Garbage is Australia’s largest reuse centre, diverting 40,000 cubic meters of valuable resources from landfill each year.
  • Award winning, much-loved organisation committed to promoting sustainability and waste reduction through the reuse of resources available for purchase at our Marrickville and Redfern sites.
  • Our dream is to have Reverse Garbage reuse centre’s and shops in every state/territory of Australia and beyond.
