Brisbane tip shops | Brisbane City Council

Brisbane tip shops

Brisbane City Council’s two tip shops are open every weekend and sell quality used, recycled and second-hand products which have been salvaged before going to landfill.

Brisbane’s tip shops are operated by the Endeavour Foundation, one of the largest non-government organisations in Australia supporting and providing opportunities for people with a disability.

Locations and opening hours

  • The Southside Tip Shop is located at 46 Colebard Street West, Acacia Ridge
  • The Northside Tip Shop is located at 27A Prosperity Place, Geebung

Standard opening hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 8am to 4pm.

Items for sale

Items sold at the tip shops have been donated for reuse via Council's resource recovery centres. These quality reuseable items include:

  • household furnishings
  • collectables
  • books
  • toys
  • sporting equipment

Donating to tip shops

Residents can donate quality, reusable household items via 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.

Make your donation count by ensuring it is clean and working. Onsite staff may refuse items that are not considered saleable.

Hop on an Eco-Thrifty Trail

Did you know both our tip shops are located in hubs of second-hand shopping?

On your next visit to the tip shop, remember that if you don’t find what you need, our handy Eco-Thrifty Trail maps provide a quick reference to what else is in the area.

The Eco-Thrifty Trail maps have been designed in partnership with the National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations (NACRO) to include all of the options available within a 4km radius of each tip shop.

Help reuse more

We want to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill in Brisbane by reusing and recovering valuable resources. Think of all the natural resources used to create everyday items that we use around the home, and all the energy and effort that has gone into making these things.

Instead of wasting these resources in landfill once we have finished using them, we can rethink our rubbish and choose to reuse, upcycle and recycle. Find out more.
