REmida – re-framing, re-using and re-inventing!


"Re – prefix – used to add the meaning 'again and again'"

At the heart of what we do is the notion of 'Re'

  • the opportunity to invent things 'again and again'
  • use things 'again and again'
  • to frame the world anew 'again and again'

The concept of reuse is the way we make our community more sustainable, whilst re-imagining the possibilities of waste!

REmida collects materials from industry that would have been discarded and re-purposes them for use in artistic and interactive educational experiences.

We source discards from over 70 local businesses to provide a unique range of material resources to the community.

REmida – re-framing, re-using and re-inventing!


The vast majority of these materials would have otherwise ended up in landfill; instead they replace the need for new resources in local classrooms, childcare centres, families and community artists.

The REmida team collect materials twice a week, visiting different areas around Perth such as Osborne Park, Malaga, Balcatta, Bayswater, Bassendean, Belmont, & Welshpool.

We regularly receive drop offs from businesses outside our collection areas and perform one-off pickups of businesses that are doing clean outs.

There is a constant flow of ever-changing materials arriving at the centre!

Sustainable Solutions for Communities and Schools


REmida does not sell these materials; instead they are made available to the community through memberships to the organisation. The aim is to provide an economic and sustainable solution to schools’ ongoing material needs and make small budgets stretch far.

Our unique materials are constantly changing so follow us on Facebook to see our current material updates.
