Teaching kids how to reuse trash in creative ways is the essence of the Reverse Garbage eco-art workshop program.

“Designed for 6-12 year olds, our themed workshops centre around the second of the three R's, reuse. Facilitators discuss the world of waste and how it impacts our environment as well as putting reuse into practice in creative ways with kids” says Workshop Co-ordinator, Nadine Schmoll.

The team at Reverse Garbage teaches kids to make their own gifts and decorations in a series of Christmas-themed eco-art workshops.

The school holiday eco-art workshop program introduces children to a world of colourful, interesting and unusual materials that were once destined for landfill.

Designed for 6 to 12 year olds, these themed workshops encourage children to create works of art, gifts and decorations using trash!

Public Transport to the Warehouse


We encourage taking public transport to the warehouse as we are within close walking distance (approx 5 mins) to both Park Road train station and Boggo Rd bus station as well as bus stops along Ipswich Rd (approx 10 mins).

Public transport runs very frequently to these stops and includes: the Clevelend, Beenleigh and Gold Coast train lines and 109, 169, 209 and 29 bus routes (plus many more)

Check out Translink for all the routes and timetables. 

Parking Facilities at the Warehouse


Earlier this year we completed a driveway crossover extension and re-painted the faded markings to create extra parking spaces in front of the warehouse! We have seven parking spaces and here is also two hour street parking available around the corner on Elliott St.

Do your students understand what a career in ecology can offer? How about landscape architecture?

As the environmental sector continues to grow and diversify, so do the career opportunities.

October is... Buy Nothing New Month!!


Buy Nothing New Month at Reverse Garbage 

Reverse Garbage celebrates October as part of the Buy Nothing New campaign!

Buy Nothing New Month reflects a growing global movement of people reassessing how and what they buy. Instead of a throw away attitude to 'stuff', Buy Nothing New Month extends the life of existing goods, maximises the value of existing stuff while promoting re-cycled, free-cycled, up-cycled, second-hand, 'swishing' and sustainable alternatives to buy nothing new that are better for you, your wallet and the planet.
