Similar to many of the other capital cities in Australia, there's no shortage of charity bins and retail stores which accept clothing donations. Wherever you are throughout central Brisbane and the Gold Coast, there'll always be a charity bin near you.
Brisbane is one of the biggest hubs in the country for donation bins scattered around the city. As well as the donation bins, you'll find plenty of retail locations that also accept donations directly to their store. Besides the Brisbane CBD, you'll find places where you can donate to in Holland Park, Ascot, Sunnybank, Aspley, Wellington Point, and many more.
Charitable organisations who'll happily accept your donated clothes and other goods in Brisbane include Lifeline, RedCross, Vinnies, Salvos, and the SCRGroup. Keep in mind that sometimes different organisation only accept certain types of donations, so check on their accepted goods before heading down to visit them. For more information on each of the organisations, scroll further down the page.
Before you gather up all your old clothes and unwanted goods to donate thinking your doing good, make sure the items you're donating can truly be put to good use. Torn or unwearable clothing, broken electrical appliances, and other damaged goods don't benefit anyone - certainly not the organistions paying over $13 million each year to bring these unusable items to landfill. If you wouldn't pass it down as a 2nd hand gift to a friend or family, reconsider donating it to a charitable organisation. That $13 million could be put to far better use.
Are you in Brisbane and know of a charity bin near you that's not on the map, let us know so we can add it in. Happy donating!
