Box of homewares ready for donation

Despite being Australia’s smallest capital city, Darwin still has plenty of charity bins and second-hand stores where you can donate your clothes to.

In the Darwin CBD and suburbs like Woolner, Larrakeyah, Fannie Bay, Coconut Grove, and The Gardens, you’re never too far from a clothing donation bin.

Organizations like the Red Cross, St Vincent De Paul (commonly known as Vinnies), and the Salvation Army operate here. If you’re unfamiliar with St Vincent De Paul, it’s probably because they’re often referred to by their nickname, Vinnies, which is easier to remember. These groups generally welcome clothing donations, though only a few accept other items like electrical appliances and homewares. If you’re considering donating items other than clothes, it’s a good idea to call ahead to confirm they can accept your donation.

If you plan to donate clothes, please be sure they’re still in reasonable condition. For these organizations, few things are more burdensome than sifting through unusable donations at clothing bins and incurring costs to transport non-usable items to landfills. It’s estimated that such issues cost Australian charities about $13 million annually — funds that could be put to much better use.

Below is a list of all the charity bins in the Darwin area. If you’re aware of another location that should be included, please let us know, and we’ll update the list. Happy donating!

Please do not donate any items to a charity bin that is already full or overflowing. Call the charity to let them know and then find another donation location in Hobart to donate to.

That depends on which charity and what type of goods you’re donating. Usually there two results – they are sold in second-hand stores, or they’re donated directly to those in need.

If you’d like to know where your donations will end up, give the charity a call and ask them.

Head over to the charity’s website and see what sort of causes they support. Find the ones that you support as well and that’ll be your donation point.
