Mareeba Shire Cr Lenore Wyatt, who is passionate about living sustainably, has been proactive in advocating for a Buy Back Shop since 2017. 

“We are excited to open the Buy Back Shop – this represents another major step towards embedding the circular economy in Mareeba,” she said.

“The shop is packed to the rafters. From bicycles to fishing gear, crockery, tables and chairs, you never know what treasure you might find. I invite the community to come and grab a bargain at the Buy Back Shop.” 

“Waste management is changing. We no longer ‘dump rubbish’ – waste is now recognised as a product that must be managed.” 

Residents are encouraged to bring items they no longer use to the shop, including automotive goods, bikes and scooters, building materials, camping, outdoor and fishing gear, CDs, DVDs and games, clothes, shoes and accessories, furniture, gardening and household items, kids and babies’ toys, paint, pavers, bricks and tiles, and sporting and recreational goods.

The Buy Back Shop, located at the Mareeba Resource Recovery Centre on Vaughan Street will be open to the public every Saturday from 10am to 3pm.
