Brisbane tip shops
The Endeavour Foundation operates both tip shops. The foundation is one of Australia's largest non-government organisations, supporting and providing opportunities for people with a disability.
Locations and opening hours
Opening hours are 8am-4pm, Saturdays and Sundays. The tip shop locations are:
- 46 Colebard Street West, Acacia Ridge
- 27A Prosperity Place, Geebung.
Items for sale
Council's resource recovery centres donate items sold at the tip shops for reuse. These quality reusable items include:
- household furnishings
- sporting equipment.
Donating to tip shops
Residents can donate quality, reusable household items at Council’s resource recovery centres. Tip shop donations from vehicles under 4.5 tonnes Combined Gross Vehicle Mass (CGVM) do not attract a disposal fee.
Ensure your donation is clean and working. On-site staff may refuse items considered not saleable.
Hop on an Eco-Thrifty Trail
Both tip shop locations are in second-hand shopping hubs. Council has an Eco-Thrifty Trail map providing a quick reference to what else is in the area.
The maps are designed in partnership with the National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations (NACRO). They include all options available within a four kilometre radius of each tip shop.
Council wants to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill by reusing and recovering valuable resources. Instead of wasting these resources in landfill, choose to reuse, upcycle and recycle. Find out more
