The Reuse Centre started in a tiny shed in 1992 and has grown to become a well-known local facility that keeps resources circulating in the community and out of landfill.
Reuse shops on site - the front and back shop have a wide range of second-hand items available for sale including furniture, building supplies, bicycles, manchester, clothing, homewares, sports equipment, electric appliances, books and much more.
Weekly tender is run from the front shop for items that are antique or collectible, quirky, brand new or expensive to buy. Anyone interested can place a silent bid in the store by leaving their details at the front shop counter. Bidding closes at the end of each Wednesday and items can be collected and paid for by cash/eftpos in the store on Thursday.

Drop Off - the public can drop off items to the facility at no charge. They must be reasonable quality and suitable for resale, which is at the discretion of staff. All items are dropped off at the back shop, just past the public recycling drop off area. Please note that we are unable to accept safety items such as life jackets, car safety seats, seat belts as we cannot guarantee their condition.
Collection and delivery service is available for furniture and larger items. There is a charge for this and arrangements must be made in advance.
