Supporting Red Cross
All proceeds from the sale go directly to Red Cross. All Bindaring volunteers are bound by our "No Pre-Purchase Policy" ensuring all donations are available for sale on the day.
Our Donation Process
All donations are stored until two weeks before the sale when sorting begins. Approximately 8 tons of clothes and accessories (around 50 cubic metres) are transferred from storage to the Robinson Pavilion. Bindaring Unit members and other volunteers gather to check and sort the mountain of donations. Items unsuitable for sale due to stains or holes can still make money for Red Cross when sold in bulk to a recycling company who ships them overseas to be processed. Nothing is wasted - recycle not landfill!
All items unsold at the end of the sale are boxed and sent to Red Cross Retail Shops around WA, earning tens of thousands of dollars more for Red Cross Services. Any items that cannot be sold through Red Cross stores, such as underwear and swimwear, are donated to relevant charities.
How to Donate
Our storage facilities are available from mid-October, and we would be delighted to store your donations until the sale. Please contact us to arrange collection.
