Managing waste wisely

Charities Offering Home Collections

Are you doing a big cleanout and have quality household items and furniture that could be reused?

Charities and op shops rely on your quality donations, and some even offer free home collections for bulky items or large collections of eligible items. See table below.

Items in high demand include clean household furniture, linen, towels, bedframes, clothing, books, unbroken glassware, crockery, cookware, kitchen utensils, trinkets, working appliances, quality toys, games, puzzles and pots and pans. These items can be sold to assist those in need, or donated to those escaping domestic crises.* Please only donate quality, clean and unbroken items. Chipped, cracked or broken items cost charities to dispose of.

*Programs like Starting Over Support (a branch of charity People Who Care) help make a house a home for over 40 families escaping domestic crises every month. Your quality donations of furniture, manchester, kitchenware, homeware and clean single bed mattresses are a lifeline for these people.
