Reuse Options

Having a clean out? Moving house?

There’s no need to send useful household items to landfill. Someone else may have a need for your old clothes, toys, furniture, kitchenware or appliances.

Looking for advice on what to do with your used items?

Call The Bower's Reuse Referral Service to find out! Phone 9568 6280

Ashfield Council is proud to support The Bower, who will either accept your goods themselves or will recommend local organisations that may be able to take them.

The Bower also operates a collection truck so can offer free collection of some items. Conditions apply.
