How should I pack my items?

Think inside the box — a wine box, food delivery box or grocery box would work!
You can also put your items into a package or satchel if you have packaging from an online order you would like to reuse.
This box or satchel must weigh less than 10kg and be sized no larger than carry-on luggage — 56cm x 36cm x 23cm.

Do pack your items in:

  • Food Delivery Box
    (Hello Fresh, Marley Spoon, Dinnerly, YouFoodz etc)

  • Toilet Paper Box
    (Who Gives a Crap, Kleenex etc)

  • Alcohol/Wine Delivery Box
    (Naked Wines, Dan Murphys etc)

  • Storage/Removals Box
    (Kent Removals, Storage King, Kennards Storage etc)

  • Pet Food Box
    (Pet Barn, Pet Circle, Scratch etc)

  • Checked Shopping Bag
    (i.e. https://www.kmart.com.au/product/checked-shopping-bag/1924313)

  • Single boxes heavier than 10kg

Choosing your items for recycling.

How should I choose my items?

We can accept most of your old, worn or damaged items. The only requirement is that items are clean, so we recommend popping everything through a quick wash before packaging it for collection!

What does 10kg look like?

If you don’t have scales then we encourage you to do your best approximate guess when packing items! And if it helps — we’ve worked out that 10kg is equal to 65 t-shirts 👕

Items we’ll accept:

  • Clothing items (jeans, t-shirts, coats etc)

  • Hats

  • Bags (handbags, duffel bags etc)

  • Socks

  • Pairs of shoes

  • Linen (bedding, towels, tea towels etc)

  • Mattress protectors

  • Fabric off-cuts and sewing scraps

  • Fabric couch covers

  • Curtains
