The Bower Reuse & Repair Centre
The Bower Reuse & Repair Centre works with local councils to collect and re-home furniture, household goods, building materials and bicycles.
Through agreements with other community groups – such as Mums4Refugees, Newtown Asylum Seeker Centre and Pyrmont Community Cares – The Bower provides furniture and household goods to asylum seekers and inner-city residents struggling to furnish their homes.
Winners’ comment: ‘Being an award winner endorses our three objectives: to reduce waste to landfill; to show how easy it is to repair or upcycle goods; and to provide affordable goods to disadvantaged communities. The award gives us the confidence to continue with our projects.’ Guido Verbist, The Bower Reuse & Repair Centre.
