Reuse Information Hub

Brought to you by

Gumtree's online community marketplace offers Australians an opportunity to reduce their environmental impact by reusing items instead of buying new. Get involved in the circular economy and divert your unwanted and pre-loved goods from landfill with Gumtree. Find Out More.


By reusing or sharing a product instead of buying a new one, we reduce the consumption of water, energy, fuel and valuable natural resources, and reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions.

There are many ways to donate, trade or exchange pre-loved items - either to give your unwanted stuff a new home, or to get new stuff that doesn't cost the earth. Examples include community recycling programs, charity 'op shops', swap parties and online trade/exchange forums.
