Did you know Council partners with the Bower Reuse and Repair Centre to provide residents with a free collection and rehoming service?
This means, if you have unwanted furniture or other items at home that you no longer want, you can call the Bower. The Bower can't accept all donations due to space, functionality, low demand or other reasons, so the Bower may refer you to some of the 1000 organisations or charities within their rehoming database. These organisations repair, reuse or resell your wanted goods, keeping them out of landfill.
This service is available free of charge to residents of the City of Canada Bay. For more information, please visit the Bower Reuse and Repair Center's website.
You can also visit the Bower Reuse and Repair Centre just like you would any other reuse or op-shop. The Bower sell thousands of goods from household items such as crockery and furniture to outdoor and building materials like tiles or bikes. Visit the Bower today because reuse matters.
