The Green Shed
We sell a very large variety of goods at bargain prices and we have helpful and friendly staff who can assist you with finding what you are looking for as well as with unloading or loading your vehicle.
What does The Green Shed accept? At The Green Shed we aim to accept the maximum amount of reusable items from the public. We have two convenient locations at the resource management centres on the north side in Mitchell and on the south side at Symonston.
If you have unwanted items that you think can be used by someone else then please drop them off at The Green Shed. Because of limited storage space or lack of demand there are some things that we sometimes have to decline. We are unable to accept or handle items that may pose a health risk and there are some items that we are not legally qualified to process. Our friendly staff will assess each item and offer you a good reason if we cannot accept it.
The Green Shed Canberra offers a range of bikes at an affordable price. We also accept used bikes in good condition
Instead of letting used furniture to a landfill, donate your unwanted pieces to The Green Shed Canberra.
We are contracted by the ACT Government to offer the public an alternative to disposing their unwanted clothes to the landfill.
The Green Shed Canberra will accept all your unwanted building materials due to be sent to the landfill and sell it to the public at affordable prices.
If you want to donate your used books, you are more than welcome to give them to The Green Shed.
Why send anything to landfill when it can be used by someone else?

Charity Days at The Green Shed
At The Green Shed (TGS) we hold a Charity Day on the last Wednesday of each month. On these days, 100% of all proceeds from sales are collected until we reach a figure of $10,000. We then donate the entire amount to our current chosen charity before we begin collecting for the next charity on our list.
Who doesn’t like the green shed? It’s great to look through and see everything they gather. I’ve bought some excellent items from them over the years and they’ve become my first stop when we need new furniture, bikes, dinnerware.
I love exploring the Green Shed, at their premises at Mitchell, Southside and the Underground in town. You never know what you’re going to find. It’s helped me with finding items for projects or restoring/upstaging something.
Great place to find used items, but you have to search carefully because sometimes the treasure is hiding behind the others. I got some beautiful furnitures here, as well as some cuttleries which still in good condition. The price is nice, and affordable.
Great place for cheep items albeit used. You often need to go more than once to actually get what you need. But the staff are nice and friendly so I would recommend going if you need something.
We went looking mainly at books and toys – great place to hunt for whatever you’re looking for – and all the clothes are free, if you don’t mind hunting through the pile! I didn’t buy the funky chairs – just some textiles, books and bits and pieces.
The green shed never lets me down. I always walk out with something useful or a project to partake of. So great this service exists in Canberra. It is truly making the world a better place!!!
