Reverse Garbage

Reverse Garbage is a worker-run co-operative that collects unwanted discards from industry and businesses, diverting these high quality materials from landfill to make them available at low cost to the community. They currently pick up materials from more than 300 suppliers around Brisbane. With a truckload of materials coming in every weekday, there's always something new and interesting in the warehouse to check out. They divert around two tonnes of materials from landfill every week.

Reverse Garbage operates a large retail warehouse at 296 Montague Road, West End, Brisbane, which is open to the public. They also run creative workshops at schools, festivals and on-site in West End, host talks for visiting students about sustainability issues and what they do, and send mail orders to rural and regional areas.

Reverse Garbage is open six days a week, Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5pm, although they are closed on public holidays. You can visit their website at or call them on 07 3844 9744 to find out more about what they do.
