About Us

Reverse Art Truck Inc. (formerly Reverse Garbage Truck Inc.) is an iconic Melbourne not-for-profit organisation that has been in operation for over 30 years.

Our mission is to pursue and promote creative re-use in the community, repurposing rejects, seconds and factory offcuts, that would otherwise go to landfill, and making them available to the greater community, educators, artists, makers, crafters and hobbyists of all ages.

​For many years we have enjoyed the support of the Maroondah and Casey City Council and the many industries who donate their offcuts to us for redistribution.

Reverse Art Truck has become so popular that it now provides materials to thousands of members of the community. Our sole aim is to provide you with a large variety of affordable resource materials and to educate on the benefits of playful creativity, resource re-use and waste reduction.
