Donate money

As a not for profit organisation, we are always grateful for our community’s support. Your financial donations help us achieve our vision of making reuse everyone’s first choice.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible. You can donate over the counter when shopping or donate here.

Sadly, after 45 years here at Addison Road Community Centre, in our current building since 1979/80, we are moving when our lease ends in January 2022.  

We’ve tried to stay

Over a prolonged period, we have tried to negotiate for a new lease or lease extension with our landlord, Addison Road Community Centre Organisation (ARCCO).

We made a number of offers and, on the right terms, were prepared to pay to fix our worn-down, beloved warehouse at an estimated cost of $2 million in exchange for a 20-year lease.

In February this year, ARCCO gave formal notice that it would not offer Reverse Garbage any renewal or extension following the expiry of the current lease term.

Onwards and upwards

As sad as we are about leaving our long-term home, we are looking at this move as an opportunity to explore and expand. We are talking with Inner West Council about relocating to their Summer Hill depot – so we will still be Inner Westies.

Our community is our strength, and we will need your help to make this transition happen.

Every dollar will help Reverse Garbage move and continue the significant environmental, educational and social impact we’ve been known for since 1975.

If you are able to, will you give a one-off or regular tax-deductible donation this end of financial year? All donations of over $2 receive a tax receipt so you can claim on your tax.
