Our Services


Do your bit for the planet and bring in your:

  • batteries
  • light globes
  • medication blister packs
  • printer cartridges
  • plastic bread tags
  • bottle lids*
  • small** e-waste

They’ll be recycled via various organisations – let’s keep it all out of landfill!

*Only codes 2 & 4, clean and with any foam or plastic inserts removed.

**As we have very limited storage, please only bring small items, eg. that can fit into a shoebox.

Rescued Food Market

The cost of living is ever-increasing yet many supermarkets and shops throw food away on a daily basis.  On Wednesdays from 11:30 AM come along to Railway House (alternate weeks this is across the road at the housing estate) and stock up on rescued food!

We usually have day-old bakery items, fruit, vegetables and sometimes dairy and pantry items.

Please BYO bag.

Book Swap

Most people have a collection of already-read books gathering dust and taking up space on their shelves. Unless a book is exceptional, chances are you won’t read it again.  So why not bring your quality used books to Railway House, and peruse our Book Swap trolley for something to borrow?

Compost Club

Pay a one-time $10 fee and receive a compost caddy which you can fill and return to Railway House to swap for an empty caddy.

Contact admin@railwayneighbourhoodhouse if you would like to join, or just drop into the office.
