Welcome

Reverse Garbage April School Holiday Workshops - click to book today
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

To keep up-to-date with the latest resources and materials that have arrived at our Marrickville site, please  download our Android app (iPhone/iPad app coming soon) below or follow us on Facebook.

    • Hi Leah – we do have mannequins and mannequin parts. Parts are around $4 to $8 depending on what kind you are after, we have black plastic torsoes available for $45, full body mannequins are normally available for $120, however, I don’t think we have any available at the moment.

  1. Hi, love what you guys do!!

    A few years ago I bought a whole bundle of dowel. Short sticks about two foot long. Just wondering if you currently have any dowel in stock?

  2. Good morning,
    I work at a Preschool and we are after some buttons for our Mothers Day craft. Preferably ones with a flat back, rather than the raised ones. Do you have any? Prices?
    Many thanks, Nicole
