Join us to be a hard rubbish hero!

Span are partnering with Darebin Hard Rubbish Heroes (DHRH) as part of our RRR Hub project and in this next phase of the project, we are super excited to support DHRH in setting up this special project… 

A pop-up shop that will offer free and low-price items, and include upcycling, recycling collection and workshops.

This is all aimed at helping us avoid items ending up in landfill as ‘hard rubbish season’ rolls around in Darebin!



The DHRH reLOVE Pop-up – keeping preloved in use!
Darebin Hard Rubbish Heroes’ (DHRH) first reLOVE pop-up shop opens on Saturday, 4 June at 684 High Street Thornbury. The shop will be open 10am – 4pm Wednesday to Saturday each week, until until 30 July.

The reLOVE Pop-up will provide an alternative to items being put out for hard rubbish collection and going to landfill. 

The pop-up shop will be volunteer led and run. 

Proceeds from sales will help pay rent and utilities while the shop is running. Any extra generated will go towards future Darebin Hard Rubbish Heroes’ events, which include raising funds for local charities.

Reuse & Recycle…

There will be a collection station in place at the shop for you to drop off items for for reuse and recycling through our project here at Span.

The list of items to be taken at the shop can be found on the DHRH info page

Apart from shop opening days there will be a series of workshops run through June and July.

You can find out more about these and register for them via our Facebook events page.
