Book your Group for a Talk & Tour of our Warehouse
You can book a tailored 30-minute Talk and Tour of the warehouse at Woolloongabba, where you will be guided through the warehouse. We talk about how and why the organisation operates within a circular economy (structure, ethos, consensus decision-making and co-operatives), why reuse is different from recycling, how and where materials are collected and sorted, and we show examples of discarded materials, diverted from landfill and put to creative reuse.
A talk and tour by a Reverse Garbage Queensland staff member costs:
$40 / 30 minutes (+ GST & booking fee) per group during weekdays ; and
$75 / 30 minutes (+ GST & booking fee) per group on Saturdays
For a tour to go ahead we require a minimum of 5 people and maximum of 25 . Multiple bookings can be made for the same day if you have a larger audience.
Bookings for a talk and tour of the warehouse are essential . Please contact us here, and include the name of your school or organisation, the number and age group of participants attending and a preferred date and time . If you would like us to tailor the talk to your project, subject or theme, please include a brief description so we can assist you in making your visit a valuable learning experience.

"Such a wonderful place for finding artwork material and for whatever else you wanted to create or utilise. This place is amazing and you could literally spend hours there just looking around. I highly recommend it."
"I loved this place, [it] was my first time going and [I] enjoyed all
the items that I found for my pre-kindy children to use. The COVID plan
was great with markings on the ground - for easy moving around - while
looking at all the items."
"Just awesome - so glad I found this place. Amazing resources for any crafters and nice, helpful people."
