Did you know that just 9% of plastic gets recycled in Australia? We want to change that and you can help us increase this number. Introducing an easier way to recycle your hard-to-recycle items with BRAD. All you need to do is purchase a BRAD drop-off, pop into our Sydney Sustainability Hub and recycle with us! 

What you need to know:

  • Drop off anytime between 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (on Thursdays until 6pm)
  • Location: Gadigal Land, Shop 19, 2 Lee Street Haymarket NSW 2000
  • The maximum size of a return is up to 2 kg in weight or a shoe box
  • For every drop off you will receive a $10 voucher to spend at Banish (minimum spend $50)

How it works:

1. Simply purchase a BRAD drop off for $10, this covers the cost of recycling your items. 

2. When you're ready head to the Sydney Sustainability Hub, located at Central Station. Take the Railway Square exit and you'll find us at Shop 19, 2 Lee Street, Haymarket.

3. Recycle your items and then you will receive $10 off your next Banish purchase (minimum spend of $50), this is also redeemable on workshops.

p.s You can still purchase BRAD Pre-Paid Labels if you'd prefer to send your recycling in the post rather than dropping it off, find out more here.

Important: if your collection is larger than a shoe box in size or heavier than 2kg then you will need to purchase two drop offs.
