We’re thrilled to accept your quality donations

Please check trading hours before dropping by


Our stores rely on generous donations of clothing, furniture and other household items to stock our quality op shops. 
All funds raised from the sale of goods will assist BSL to deliver many programs and services that make lasting change in the lives of disadvantaged Australians.

Planning on dropping off your donations?

We’re currently experiencing a very high volume of donated goods, so we may not be able to accept them from time to time. Please call your local BSL op shop or Hunter Gatherer store before dropping by.

We kindly ask that goods are not left outside when our stores are closed. We’ll gratefully accept them during trading hours when we have the capacity to store them.


Now accepting donations of:

  • Books
  • Men's, women's and children's clothing, shoes and accessories
  • Furniture, homewares and electrical items.

Not sure if your items are suitable for donation?

While we’d love to accept all donations, there are some things we can’t accept. See below for our guide to donating.

Perhaps you’ve considered donating your time?

If you’re interested in volunteering with BSL Op Shops, we’d love to hear from you!
