Service description: The Bower is an environmental charity committed to reducing waste going to landfill. We collect timber household furniture, bikes, some electrical appliances and building materials. You can also donate these items directly to our Marrickville shopfront, as well as bric-a-brac, tools, ceramic tiles, musical instruments. The collection service is free for some councils areas in Sydney, or a low-cost fee to other areas.

The shopfront is a treasure trove of delights with donations arriving daily – you never know what you’ll find – all at incredibly low prices.

The Bower also runs ‘Tricks of the Trade’ workshops teaching basic carpentry, furniture restoration and upholstery and regularly holds Upcycled Art workshops for children.

Every Wednesday, The Bower holds a Repair Café where you can get free technical assistance fixing dodgy electrical appliances, wobbly bikes and rickety furniture.
