Our Wānaka Reuse Shop
Wastebusters’ Reuse Shop is the environmental heart of Wānaka and a much loved destination for locals and visitors alike. Our funky and vibrant hub has twice been celebrated by our community naming us Lake Wanaka Tourism’s Locals Choice Best Clothing Shop and MoreFM’s Top Shop.
Every year, tens of thousands of people visit to our reuse shop in Wānaka, where we sell everything from pre-loved designer clothes and furniture to skis and snowboards.
Often people buy something and use it for a while, then drop it back to us when they’ve finished using it. We love finding things a second home so they don’t end up being thrown out, and we love making life in Central Otago a bit more affordable.
All our goods are donated by people who support our zero waste mission, and we really appreciate the ongoing support from our communities.
All the people who donate their no-longer-needed stuff to us are the stars who keep our reuse shops in business. Any money we make from our education, reuse and recycling services is put towards our work for zero waste.
We’re open every day from 9am to 5pm. The only days we close are Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Easter Friday and the morning of Anzac Day.
