Creating a world without waste – including human potential


Icon for questionHow does Circonomy work?

We work with major brands and retailers across Australia to mobilise dormant goods, and collect, repair, refurbish and renew products that may otherwise be sent to landfill. Our refurbishment teams restore items to a new or as-new condition, and we make them available for purchase at really affordable prices!  

We look at new ways products and materials can be used, empowering individuals and businesses to reduce, reuse, recycle and repurpose, helping people see the value, potential and beauty in products that get a second chance.  

Icon for questionWhere do you get your stock from?

Unlike a traditional retailer, we don’t have a supply chain – we have a surprise chain! Meaning new arrivals every week, ranging from the latest tech, fashion, homewares, office furniture and stationery from top brands and retailers. As we get our products from retailers across Australia, our products are genuine and authentic. 

Icon for questionA product I want is out of stock. When will it be restocked?

Due to our “surprise chain”, we cannot guarantee that we will get the same item back in stock. We don’t want you to miss out – so grab it ASAP! Alternatively you can sign up to our newsletter and follow our socials to know when new products are in.

Icon for questionCan I price match with another retailer?

Our stock come from mobilising dormant goods or products destined for landfill for many reasons such as damaged boxes, missing parts, damaged products, and more. Our products aren’t always in brand new condition that you would see at your traditional retailer, so they may not price match to our prices.


Icon for questionHow are your products so affordable?

We get our inventory from a range of retailers and top brands looking to move dormant stock such as old season stock, slow moving goods or products simply not being used, or from products destined for landfill due to damaged product or boxes, missing parts, or needing repairs that isn’t financially feasible for them to do.  

We take these goods and renew, repair, and refurbish them to get them ready to be rehomed where they will be used, keeping these goods in the economy. So while you get to shop affordably, you also get to shop sustainably! 

Icon for questionIs the product quality comparable with other retailers?

We aim to make sure that our stock is of high-quality. Our experienced team assesses all products that arrive for sale, and tests them where required. We undertake a comprehensive QA and grading process for every product. As a result, your product may include, or be subject to any of the following:     

  • non-original spare parts that are used to renew the product,  
  • repairs or slight modifications to the original presentation of the product,   
  • an electrical safety test called “test and tag” to ensure that powered items are electrically safe through third party assessors,  
  • superficial packaging not essential to the operation of the unit may have been removed or replaced,  
  • evidence of use, either from previous ownership, or from our team as a part of our internal quality testing.

Icon for questionDo your products come with warranty?

In addition to your rights under Australian Consumer Law, and our Change of Mind policy, Circonomy's 12 month warranty offers additional peace of mind. This warranty begins from the date displayed on your proof of purchase.   

Our 12-month warranty is intended to protect your item from manufacturing/refurbishing defects and electrical and mechanical failures. Following an assessment, Circonomy will repair, replace or refund at our discretion.
