What is Ziilch?

Embrace a feel-good and sustainable approach
to de-cluttering and re-use with Ziilch.


Ziilch (pronounced “zilch” and meaning “zero, zip, nada”) –
is a like-minded community of givers and receivers who
care about their community and environment and
value the notion that one person’s clutter is
another person’s treasure.

Providing a way for Australians to give away items they
no longer want
to other people that may need them,
Ziilch’s free community-driven platform promotes
social responsibility and environmental sustainability
by keeping good stuff out of landfill.


Supporting a circular economy model, Ziilch encourages
landfill diversion by re-using, repairing, upcycling
and recycling.

Who is behind Ziilch?

Ziilch is managed by a small team of volunteers who are
about diverting useful items from landfill.
Their values align with Ziilch founder, Michelle Power,
who identified the need for a re-use platform when
renovating her home. With household and renovation
materials destined for landfill, it was clear to Michelle that
there needed to be a forum to give away unwanted items
that weren
t suitable for donation.
