Reverse Garbage was started by educators and we’ve been educating the community for over forty five years! We truly are the experts in sustainability education and reuse. 

We can come to you or you can come and visit us at our warehouse and education workshop space.

Our passionate educators are all qualified and highly experienced and will work with your students to ignite their curiosity, their creativity, develop problem solving. We aim to support your good work, providing you with the skills, materials and opportunities you might need to get your students playing, thinking and making more creatively and more sustainably. 

Professional development

We are the proud providers of workshops and seminars that give you and your colleagues loads of usable insights and ideas for making learning spaces more mindful, more sustainable, more creative and more fun. All sessions count towards teacher-identified professional development.

Our annual PD event ‘Replay’ includes some courses that are registered by the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).
