Welcome to the Northern Rivers Reuse and Repair Trail

We are helping people to access the circular economy market in the Northern Rivers

Good stuff doesn’t belong in landfill, and neither do things that can be repaired or reused. In fact, nothing should be designed and manufactured that can’t be reused or repaired!

We are making it easier for our community to find places they can repair and reuse everything from building materials, to electronics and textiles. We also want to highlight businesses and organisations that are actively taking on circular economy principles, avoiding waste and providing reusable options for their customers and clients.

Choose to reuse!

By choosing to repair or reuse, we are helping to create a viable circular economy market where we can be responsible, sustainable consumers and businesses.

Find out more about why we are doing this here.
