In Australia the organised collection of donated used clothing and household goods are mainly undertaken by charities. By world standards, it is a sector that is driven by benevolence that sets it apart from the for-profit sector.
Charitable recycling is a system through which thousands of tonnes of donated goods (including a portion of household post consumer waste) are diverted from landfill and redistributed to men, women and children overwhelmed by life’s hardships, or sold to assist in the charitable works of the organisations that have invested in the recycling infrastructure. It is accepted by Australians as a traditional and valuable community service; the practice of donating to a local charity is a cultural norm for Australians.
Giving clothes, household bricabrac and furniture in good condition, is a great way of helping out the community.
Whether it is your personal clothes or furniture or items from your workplace, these donations can make a great difference to adults and children facing hard times, by providing much needed items, and by helping raise funds for the charity’s community programs.
