We’re open

To keep everyone safe, all shoppers will need to wear a mask, check in with the QR code and provide proof of double vaccination before they enter the warehouse.

We will be accepting donations by appointment. Please email photos and your availability to info@reversegarbage.org.au

And we’ve found a new home

In early 2022, we will move to a new home, but still in Marrickville. Read more…

Creative! Thrifty! Responsible! Independent!

Reverse Garbage is a creative reuse centre making a difference in the world by reducing waste and creating change in the way we look at resources. We inspire and support kids, adults, artists and teachers to consume less, make more, save money – and feel good doing it!


We see the creative potential in leftover and castaway materials and save them from going into landfill.


We make a treasure trove of rare and wonderful materials available to you at our warehouse and online.


We run workshops for kids, adults and community groups so everyone can learn how to consume less and make more!


We can help your business deal responsibly with waste.

When you partner with us, the materials you no longer need will end up in the hands of people who can use them, instead of in landfill. Reduce your waste disposal costs and your carbon footprint by donating your discards and leftovers to Reverse Garbage, avoiding the energy consumption and waste generation associated with recycling.

Let’s work together


You can do it! You can knock up those shelves, alter that skirt or make that toy basket! Come to us for fabulously original materials and a bit of how-to knowledge.


Be part of the growing community of artists, sculptors, set designers and costume makers who rely on Reverse Garbage to help bring big creative ideas to life. Check out our shop or let us know what you’re looking for.


Book Reverse Garbage to appear at your event. We can set up a drop-in workshop space at your nominated site and run half-day or full-day craft activities for families and kids. Get in touch with us to discuss your plans.
