What sort of items can be donated and purchased from the SJ Reuse Shop?

The Reuse shop can give your unwanted items a second life and save them from landfill. If it is still fair to good quality, your trash could be someone else’s treasure.

Of course, there are some items that cannot be donated. Below is a guide to what items are acceptable and unacceptable at the SJ Reuse Shop.

WHAT WE CAN ACCEPT WHAT WE CANNOT ACCEPT
Furniture (outdoor and indoor) Sheets of glass/broken glass
Bric-a-brac (picture frames, ornaments etc.) Safety-rated products (baby car seats, bike helmets etc.)
Manual tools (such as garden tools) Electrical items
Bicycles, sporting goods, camping gear Gas bottles/gas items
Clothing and accessories Plants, soil, organic items, food
Toys, games and play equipment Items containing personal data (phones, computers etc.)
Manchester (towels, sheets, blankets etc.) Mattresses
Books, DVDs Tyres
Kitchenware Chemicals (oil, paints, hazardous household waste)

PLEASE NOTE: Only eftpos transactions will be accepted at the SJ Reuse Shop. No cash purchases.

Many items that are not accepted at the SJ Reuse Shop may still be processed at the Waste Transfer Station, including mattresses, tyres and electrical items.

Price guide

The aim of the SJ Reuse Shop is to recycle items so you can grab a bargain from as little as 50 cents!

Here is an example of the prices you might expect to see on some of the more common household items at the shop.

  • Books/DVDs/CDs/PC Games/Records: $1 each or three for $2
  • Bicycles: $15 each or 2 for $20
  • Blankets/quilts/covers/curtains: $5 each or $10 for a set
  • Towels/mats/sheets: $2 each or two for $3
  • Kitchenware (bowls, plates, containers): $1 each or 3 for $2
  • Picture frames/prints/paintings: $2 small, $5 large

The full price guide for smaller items will be displayed in the SJ Reuse Shop. Larger items such as furniture will vary in price.

All items will be sold "as is" and may not be fit for their original purpose.

Shop n Swap for kids

There will be a children’s library section where books (early learning to primary school age) and DVDs can be swapped like for like. 

Plus, babies grow so quickly and go through a lot of clothes and accessories, so while we would prefer that usual clothing donations go to the charity bins on-site at the Waste Transfer Station, the “Shop n Swap” section will include kids clothing and accessories.

You can bring in a similar clothing donation and swap it for free items from the Shop n Swap section.
