Waste Nott recycling store

Art is education - CHOOSE to reuse!

The Waste Nott Recycling Store is a creative reuse enterprise, committed to diverting resources from landfill and redistributing discarded goods as low-cost supplies for art, education and fun.

The store is a treasure trove of art and craft materials as we look for varied and unusual manufacturing discards that are ideal for all kinds of creative projects. Our volunteers sort out the materials which are then available to schools, community groups, individuals (everyone) for creative use – or ‘reuse’ – using resources to create new items or to give items a new purpose.

Our materials are excellent for:

  • children's arts & crafts
  • card making
  • party decorations
  • costumes
  • quilting
  • prop making
  • storage containers
  • jewellery making

The bins are set up at a child-friendly height encouraging kids to explore, create, and shop for themselves. Choose from three bag sizes with prices ranging from $1 to $5. Larger volumes by negotiation.

Here is a sample list of items to choose from:

Why reuse? Reuse makes sense as it prolongs the life of a resource or resources. Reuse saves the energy and materials needed to produce brand new materials. Reuse prevents otherwise useful resources going to waste/landfill. Reuse creates less air and water pollution than if it was recycled and Reuse reduces money spent on new items and costs of disposal.
