The Bower

The Bower’s Collection and Rehoming Service

The Bower is a not-for-profit environmental Charity & Cooperative that assists in diverting waste from landfill by collecting, repairing and selling preloved goods. Council has a current membership with The Bower to help residents divert waste from landfill and preserve natural resources.

Collection Service

Do you have a preloved household item you no longer want but you don’t want going to landfill? You can use The Bower’s Web Booking Tool to request a free collection. The Bower will visit your place of residence and pick up the goods for you.

Rehoming Service

If you have an item The Bower cannot accept, you can use their Reuse Database to find organisations in your area that can reuse or recycle your item. You can also find places to repair your household items.

City of Ryde residents can use the Collection and Rehoming Services an unlimited number of times. Having unwanted items recycled, repaired, or reused has never been easier.
