Our op shops are temporarily closed for the next few days

We hope to re-open as soon as restrictions have lifted


Please hold onto your donations until we re-open.

  • Whitegoods
  • Bathroom screens 
  • Baby furniture such as cots, prams and highchairs 
  • Non-digital TVs and TV units for non-digital televisions
  • Building materials, underlay and carpets, awning curtain rods
  • Gas appliances
  • ​​​​​​​Computers and e-waste – please refer to http://recyclingnearyou.com.au
  • Mattresses and bases, bunk beds
  • Outdoor playground equipment (swing sets, trampolines)
  • Furniture over 2 metres wide or 2 metres high
  • Wall units 
  • Office equipment including chairs and filing cabinets
