Mail Order

Welcome to our mail order service! 

Reverse Garbage Queensland is committed to supplying interesting, inexpensive and environmentally responsible alternatives to mainstream art and craft supplies to regional Queensland and beyond. The warehouse is brimming with an array of colourful and interesting salvaged materials including timber, textiles, foam, fabrics, metal, plastics, boxes, rope, paper, card and more!

Packed into large, reused cardboard boxes and sent through the post, these mixed materials are great for schools, kindergartens, OSHC and childcare centres or anyone wanting materials in bulk.

Perfect for use in craft, constructive and creative activities as well as school projects, you may also find our materials will compliment and enhance many other activities and areas of learning. Some materials can be reused again and again in your classroom or centre as props for creative or imaginative play, tools or resources to inspire exploring, creating and constructing or for use in games or physical activities.

Select from our comprehensive list of material barrels, activity barrels and themed barrels or tailor a custom barrel to suit your specific project or subject area.

Age Groups & Skill Levels

We are aware that when manipulating and using materials, skill level is most commonly determined by age. Therefore we have assigned a suggested age bracket to barrels that require particular skill levels to achieve most tasks independently. When packing your order we consider your age group and aim to pack accordingly. Please contact us if wish to discuss further options or adapt a barrel to your age group.

Our Mail Order Service is not just for posting! If you are able to pick up from the store you can save time by having us pack the materials for you, save money on postage and get your materials sooner!
