If you’re in the city, you’ll easily be able to find a donation bins in the Adelaide CBD and in suburbs such as Port Adelaide, Glenelg, Mawson Lakes, Golden Grove, and more.

Some of the organisations that maintain the charity bins and operate retail stores selling second-hand goods in Adelaide include The Salvation Army (Salvos), St Vincent De Paul (Vinnies), Redcross, Lifeline, and the SCRGroup. Before you head down to one of the bins or stores, check beforehand if they accept what you’re looking to donate. Most will accept clothes, but not all accept homewares, electrical appliances, or other household items.

As well, don’t gather up all the things you simply don’t want in your house and pawn them off into a donation bin or pay a store a midnight visit and dump it all for them to take care of. Reports are these charitable organisations are spending more than $13 million each year hauling off unusable donations to landfill. Money which could be far better spent on more useful projects.
