Donate or sell items

Several organisations will accept donated items if they're in good condition or just need minor repairs.

Consider donating your unwanted items instead of sending them to landfill. Donating is great for your community and the environment.

Op Shops

You can donate unwanted items to a local Op Shop. The money they raise from selling second-hand items helps support disadvantaged people and improve social outcomes.

Please make sure any items you donate are in good condition. You should also phone before you drop by, as some stores may be closed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Alternatively, you can save donations for when stores reopen or check if they have a donation bin.

Find your nearest Op Shop on the Darebin Op Shop Map or the Sustainable Darebin Map.

Darebin Hard Rubbish Heroes

Darebin Hard Rubbish Heroes (DHRH) is a community-run Facebook group that helps save usable items from landfill.

Simply put your unwanted items on the the Darebin Hard Rubbish Heroes Facebook page or post a request for them to contact you with other options.

WeCycle

WeCycle is a volunteer-run community bikeshed in Northcote. You can donate unwanted bicycles and parts to be refurbished and given it to someone who needs it.

Visit the WeCycle website for more.

Big Group Hug

You can donate unwanted baby and children's accessories and toys to Big Group Hug if they're in good condition. Big Group Hug gives them directly to families through maternal and child health workers and welfare agencies.
