About Us

Welcome to REmida Creative Reuse Centre!

REmida collects industrial discards from shops and factories around Perth, and makes these materials available to schools, childcare centres, artists and families. Come and visit us and see what we have to offer; come have a play or lend a hand, bring your kids!

We also run workshops and activities for schools, Early Years programs and festivals using our materials. We offer professional development workshops for teachers about how to use recycled materials in the classroom and other supportive practices to strengthen your learning environments.

Our aim is to encourage children and adults to think creatively about waste materials, finding new ways of thinking about waste.
