SNH is a collection point for 6 different sustainable initiatives:

Aussie Breadtags for Wheelchairs
We collect plastic bread tags that are then sent to be recycled locally. This project raises funds to buy wheelchairs for disadvantaged people, mainly in South Africa.

We collect plastic bottle lids which are sent to Jesuit Social Services’ Ecological Justice Hub where they use specialist machinery to recycle and repurpose the lids.

Coffee Pod Collection Point
Your aluminium coffee capsules are collected at our reception, then sent to a local specialist recycling plant to separate the coffee from the aluminium so they can both go on to have a second life.

Project Pair Up
This initiative collects mismatching containers, lids and their accessories, and pairs them up so they can be given back to the community or donated.

Packshare Bag Collection
Project Pair Up has partnered with Packshare to collect reusable shopping bags for use in food drives without having to buy new bags

Recycle4Change (R4C)
R4C collects eligible containers through the Victorian Deposit Scheme. A yellow collection bin will be outside our front door during business hours for you to donate eligible 10c containers. Half of the 10c refund goes to R4c, and half to SNH.


Sussex Neighbourhood House is closed to the public from 15th December, reopening on Monday 15th January.

Hope you all have a happy and safe holiday break!

Welcome to PUPS – the Pop-Up Painting Society presented at Sussex Neighbourhood House.

PUPS is suitable for 18-25’s who are interested in gaining artistic skills and connecting with their creative side through the joy of making with the support of your instructor, Scarlet.

Scarlet will guide you in these one-off workshops and assist you to explore a range of creative processes and skills, from idea generation, drawing and watercolour painting, to paper pop-up construction and artbook making techniques, and introduce you to materials, tools and their applications. You will be shown in this session step-by-step how to make a layered illustrated pop-up artwork, incorporating 3-dimensional paper elements and drawing inspiration from the natural world and your imagination.
