Reverse Garbage is 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.

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

    Hi guys great job & I wish you every success. There is an enormous amount of unnecessary waste these days. By any chance have you come across or have a horse ‘manequin’, ie a large staue horse used in stage sets?

    Sheets of white cork flute in at the moment?

      Hi Kim, we have lots of corflute available at the moment, some in larger sizes which are old posters/signs that are blank on the reverse. Many thanks, RG

    It is good to hear that waste and landfill problems are being tackled and that garbage issues are not being swept under the carpet. This is a subject which seldom gets an airing in pubilc, so it is good to read this article. Thanks for this.
