As reported by ABC News:

The wastage that is a result of clothes and other goods being dumped outside stores and charity clothing bins is upwards of $13 million per year.

If you find that the store or clothing bin you are taking your items to is full or overflowing, please don’t just dump them and leave, this helps nobody!

There are plenty of worthwhile causes out there that may take them off your hands and actually give them a use.

Check out our previous blog post about charities and organisations that you may not have heard of before but will give your items a new beginning.
