The Anglesea Community House Resale Shed aims to save non-organic waste from landfill and promote the benefits of a circular economy by encouraging the community to rethink waste disposal.

First established in 2013, the shed diverts an estimated 144 tonnes of non-organic material from landfill annually by ensuring high-quality, reusable household items find another home.

Each year, 20 local community groups and about 500 volunteers are engaged to manage the operation of the shed and spread awareness of this initiative among their families, friends, and businesses.

More than $200,000 has been raised from the sale of items saved from landfill, with the funds returned to the volunteer groups that make this project possible.
