Sydney is one of the largest hubs in Australia for donating your clothes and other household items. Having the largest population in the country, it also has the highest number of charitable organisations willing to accept your donated clothes, which is fantastic for everyone involved.

Throughout Sydney and the greater metropolitan area, you’ll find hundreds of clothing donation bins as well as retail store locations operated by charities to who you can donate directly. You’ll be able to find these locations in the Sydney CBD, and suburbs such as Bondi, Potts Point, Redcliff, Blacktown, Penrith, Wetherill Park, and Parramatta. With nearly all of Sydney’s suburbs covered on the map, you’ll be pleased to know there’ll also be a charity bin near you.

Some of the largest charitable organisations in Sydney include Vinnies, Red Cross, the SCR Group, Salvation Army, and the Smith Group – all well-established places to donate your clothes and homewares. Most of the organisations treat your donated goods in a similar way to each other, but if you’d like to know more specifics, feel free to do a little bit more research before donating.

Keep in mind before you go ahead and donate your goods into a charity bin, that the organisation that manages the bin is able to put your goods to good use. It’s become quite a nuisance for many of these organisations in Australia having to deal with donated goods that have been incorrectly donated or unworthy to be passed on to someone in need. In fact, it’s costing these organisations up to $13 million each year to bring unusable goods to landfill. If we all paid a little more attention to what we’re donating, that money could be far better used.

List of Sydney Donation Locations

Australia’s largest list of Sydney clothing donation bins and stores


If the location you’ve chosen to donate to is already filled up to the brim with goods, or overflowing, please do not add to the pile.

It’s sore on the eyes for the community and causes a major hassle for the charitable organisation. Spend a little time finding a new location or wait until it’s been emptied.

Sometimes the charity takes the donated goods to one of their stores for sale, then using the funds to support their causes. Other times charities simply repurpose and donate the goods directly to those in need.

If you’d like to know exactly where you items are going, get in touch with the charity directly and ask them.

There are many different charities in Sydney, all supporting a wide range of different causes. They’re not necessarily better than one another, but rather just different.
