What's new and what's happening in store at Reverse Garbage Queensland

Happy Easter all!

We hope the Easter break will give you all a chance for some R&R. We've be reveling in the buzz of children and families entertaining themselves during the school holidays with some creative reuse. We've still got a few spots available in our eco-art workshop program for next week - book here. As usual our warehouse is packed with goodies to get your creative juices flowing.

See you in the Woolloongabba warehouse soon!

Sept School Holiday Workshops

Reverse Garbage Queensland is a not-for-profit worker run co-operative that promotes environmental sustainability and resource reuse. We collect high quality industrial discards, diverting them away from landfill and sell them at a low cost to the general public.

We collect from more than 300 businesses and factories in the greater Brisbane area, with approximately three tonnes coming into the warehouse each week. With a truck full of materials coming in almost every day, there's always something new and different to find.

We run a variety of environment and waste focused art workshops and educational talks and tours to suit every age and group. We also run a mail order service and host Reverse Emporium gallery and gift shop promoting local artists, craft workers and designers who salvage, reuse and up-cycle materials.
