Did you know that 196 tonnes of pre-loved goods were diverted from landfill last financial year through Momentum Collective’s second-hand recovery shop, Ballina Salvage Shed? That’s equivalent to 196 standard-size cars!
If you’re in the mood for a rummage or after a particular item to repair or replace, the Salvage Shed will often have the goods! There are countless benefits to visiting the Salvage Shed, the main reasons are you are consuming more consciously, which is great for the planet, and you are supporting Momentum Collective employees who live with a disability or are recovering from mental health.
Reflecting on Salvage Shed’s busy year, it has certainly been a memorable 2022:
- Tag and Test Electrical items. Our hard-working team now tag and test every electrical item in the store. This means customers are better informed on the state and safety of electrical tools, lighting, and household appliances for sale. As all products are second-hand, warranties are not provided.
- Stay up to date with the Salvage Shed Facebook page. The Salvage Shed Facebook page is updated regularly with some of the materials that come in and events such as bicycle maintenance demos and upcycled crafts.
- Start an upcycled gift tradition this year. At this time of year, there are plenty of quality Christmas trees, decorations, and a wide range of upcycled gifts. Drop by and check out what our Salvage Shed shop has to offer. The Salvage Shed is next to the Waste Management Centre at 167 Southern Cross Drive, Ballina. We are open daily between 9.30 am – 3.30 pm (excluding public holidays).
