Workplace Description:

Reverse Garbage is a not for profit worker run cooperative that collects high quality industrial discards, diverting them from landfill to sell them at low cost to the general public.

Set up in 1998 to support Friends of the Earth - Brisbane, we sell a wide array of interesting and ever changing materials for re use. Whether it be art and craft, a school project, something that needs to be renovated around the home, an upcoming theatre production, we probably have materials here that you can a fraction of the price you would normally pay. We believe waste is something we DO not something that IS and strive to promote the REUSE of materials with recycling being the last option.

Melissa Smrecnik - I love everything you guys do! I visited your store just the other week and got very inspired to start taking on some DIY projects using recycled materials.
