Reuse, Recycle and Repair

To donate:

The Toy Library is in need of quality, well maintained, clean toys. We can’t use soft toys.

Please contact us if you wish to donate specialist toys or equipment in good condition so that we can check that it is what the library is in need of.

Involved with recycling:

EarlyEd is committed to supporting reuse, recycling and repair approaches in the community and keeping toys out of our waste. Please be in touch if there are ways we can be more involved with these community approaches.

There are many organisations in the local community that are happy to recycle toys and may also repair them. Go to for local recycling opportunities.

This Northern Beaches Council link shares local waste reduction opportunities.

Resources available

Families are required to clean toys before returning them. Please advise staff if there has been any illness or COVID infections recently in the home, so staff can take additional measures.
