Welcome

Reverse Garbage is Australia’s largest creative reuse centre, committed to diverting resources from landfill – approximately 35,000 cubic metres or 100 football fields worth per year.

Reverse Garbage was established in 1974 by a group of teachers who were 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 through the reuse of resources available at its Marrickville warehouse, as well as providing support to other community, creative and educational organisations. This support is often in the form of donated materials, service-in-kind or small financial sponsorships.

Our Reverse Garbage Warehouse is open to the public 7 days a week (click here for our location and operating hours) to purchase a variety of reusable materials and resources at considerably discounted prices. We also offer a range of tours and educational workshops for students tailored to different ages, abilities and needs.

We look forward to welcoming you at our Reverse Garbage Marrickville site! For any enquiries please contact us on 02 9569 3132 or email us at info@reversegarbage.org.au

Also hot off the press! We have a new location that has recently opened in Redfern! “Reconsidered” is a shop space featuring a range of unique interior décor and furnishings, sustainable art works and a range of other… curiosities. It is at 167 Regent Street, Redfern and open Tuesday to Saturday from 10-5pm.

  1. Hi,

    I was just wondering if you had different cuts of wood? Preferably wood with nice colours, textures and grains. I was thinking something on the lines of ply as it was to be wide yet not too heavy so reassembly thin.

    Thank you!

    • Hi Karina,

      Yes, we have many pallets in at the moment. Prices vary from $5-$20 depending on size, wood and condition of the pallet. Give us a call on 9569 3132 to discuss further
