Brisbane residents now have a one-stop shop for bargain-hunting that will also support one of Queensland’s oldest charities.
The Brisbane Tip Shop was launched today and will be the ultimate shop for bargain hunters.
Not only will the shop offer quality pre-loved goods to the public, many of them rescued from being thrown away forever, but proceeds will go toward providing opportunities for people with a disability.
A partnership between Brisbane City Council and Endeavour Foundation, the shop will sell furniture, household goods, sporting equipment, toys, bikes, barbecues, building materials and much more, at very reasonable prices.
The aim of the shop is to reduce the amount of waste ending up in landfill while also offering the public a chance to grab fantastic bargains and support people with a disability.
Endeavour Foundation Industries (EFI), which provides employment and training opportunities for people with a disability, will operate the West Acacia Ridge site.
The Council will supply products from its four waste transfer stations.
EFI staff and volunteers will receive, sort, and prepare the goods for sale at the Brisbane Tip Shop.
All proceeds will go toward supporting people with a disability.
“This is a fantastic opportunity for the public to not only have access to affordable goods, but to know they are directly helping people with a disability,” said Endeavour Foundation CEO David Barbagallo.
“Not to mention the obvious benefits to the environment, in saving thousands of tonnes of re-useable goods from ending up in landfill every year.”
The Brisbane Tip Shop is located at 46 Colebard Street, West Acacia Ridge and will open to the public every weekend from Saturday May 15.
Opening times will be 8am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday.
