Reverse Garbage celebrates 40 years

I look forward to joining Reverse Garbage this Saturday to celebrate 40 years of their service to the inner west community.

Reverse Garbage was established in 1974 through a grant of $35,000 from the Whitlam Government.

Since then Reverse Garbage has shown enormous dedication to promoting sustainability and today is an internationally recognised, award-winning environmental co-operative.

Over the years Reverse Garbage has won a number of awards from Marrickville Council, the City of Sydney and the NSW Business Chamber.

Well-known for their commitment to reuse and sustainability education, Reverse Garbage redirects more than 1,200 cubic metres of industrial waste to community groups and others for creative and educational purposes every year.

As the population of our cities continue to grow, educating communities on reuse and sustainability is more important now than ever before.

I want to congratulate Reverse Garbage and CEO Dare Kavanagh on this great achievement, and wish them every success in the future.
