Rummage is the shop at Green Island Landfill where you can take your pre-loved items for someone else to find.

Free drop off of reusable items

Bring your pre-loved items to Rummage at the Green Island Landfill and help us keep useful items out of the landfill. Items must be in reasonable condition.

What does Rummage sell?
