IKEA Tempe
Lets help turn inspiration into action
IKEA Sydney has donated the proceeds of a kitchen that was displayed at the HIA Sydney Home show. The proceeds of this kitchen will go towards helping House with No Steps build their very own kitchen.

House with No Steps have been supporting people with a disability to live a good life as valued members of their community. The kitchen will be used to teach people with a disability valuable cooking and life skills.

A brighter Liverpool Hospital
Liverpool Hospital is the major health service for south-western Sydney. These services include a Children’s and Women’s Health Centre & Cancer Therapy Centre.

Our DC (distribution team) team has refreshed rooms within these centres, providing patients; undergoing lengthy treatments; with a more comfy experience.

Our DC team also visited the children’s ward to give children toys in exchange for smiles and giggles!

IKEA Rhodes

We've transformed the family suites at Bear Cottage
Bear Cottage was designed to be a home away from home to support families who are caring for a child with a life limiting illness in the comfort of a homely environment.

Now that Bear Cottage is twelve years old, like any home, years of wear and tear have taken their toll on the rooms and furniture which have become a little tired. This November a team of co-workers from IKEA Rhodes, IKEA Tempe, IKEA Service office and IKEA Contact Centre came together to makeover the two family suites at Bear Cottage.

The newly made over suites were unvield on Friday 15th November and were wonderfully received by the staff and families at Bear Cottage.

Why you should give a toss where you toss your waste

There's no need to toss recycling into the 'too hard' basket. With our RATIONELL waste sorting system you can separate your recyclables right away in your kitchen. This avoids contaminating your recyclables with general waste. And the good old organic compost waste pays dividends with healthy soil for your garden.

The bins are easy to lift and carry out to the bin, and lids lock in odours from organic waste. RATIONELL is made to fit 40, 60 or 80 cm base cabinets.

A more sustainable grocery bill
At IKEA, we hate every kind of waste. Many households may throw away as much as a quarter of the food they buy. When you think about it as one out of four grocery bags, it’s easy to get motivated to do something about it. Here are some smart products that can help you save money on your next food bill.

RARITET food storage
We tend to eat what we see, which is why we made RARITET out of see-through plastic that can go into your dishwasher, freezer and microwave. These clever products stack, store and measure so you make the most of space, time and money – three resources that we could all use more of!
Water saving solutions are on tap at IKEA
Switching an old-fashioned kitchen or bathroom tap to one from IKEA can reduce water use by 30 percent or more. What’s the secret? Well, a pressure compensating aerator, a little device inside the tap that restricts the flow without reducing the water pressure. By adding a bit of air to the flow, we help you save water and hopefully money, too.

The green bag
The FRAKTA carry bag may look blue, but it’s actually green.

Help save the planet one plastic bag at a time. FRAKTA carry bags are reusable, durable and versatile. Use them for garden waste, laundry bag, beach bag, as storage, a toy bag, library bag or shopping bag... The possibilities are endless! And now at a new lower price, there’s more you can do with a little small change. Grab one (or two or more) at the check outs during your next visit.
We make it easy for you to recycle

Did you know that you can bring some of your recycling with you to IKEA Tempe? Bring your batteries and light globes to our recycling station as both contain some nasties which are harmful to the environment.

Rather than throwing them out and damaging the environment, save them in a recycling box and bring them along next time you come over to shop! Leave your items at our recycling area and we'll dispose of them safely with the correct recycling companies. You can also bring your cardboard to recycle. You'll find our recycling station just after the check-outs.

We recylce 100% of our coffee grounds
Coffee grounds are an excellent addition to compost piles. They are rich in nitrogen and pH neutral.

Our coffee grounds are freely available every Tuesday for you to take home and add to your own compost pile. You can collect our coffee grounds next to our recycling area.

So next time you enjoy a coffee at the IKEA Tempe Restaurant or Bistro, you can be assured that none of the valuable grounds will go to waste.

Coffee grounds are an excellent addition to your compost pile
