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.

The organisation was established in 1975 by a group of teachers and community workers determined to ease pressure on the environment. Their plan was to divert industrial discards from landfill and reuse those materials in their classrooms.

More than four decades since it began, Reverse Garbage is now an internationally recognised environmental co-operative committed to promoting sustainability through the reuse of waste materials.

Reverse Garbage is a registered not-for-profit charity.

Since 1975, Reverse Garbage has been protecting the planet from needless waste and enriching the community with a can-do creative spirit. The funds we raise in our shop help offset the cost of teaching creative reuse to kids, adults and community groups.

Your support, through membership, volunteering and donations, makes a big difference.
