Help someone in need and support a more sustainable future by coming along to the Brimbank Reusable Goods Drop-off Day.
Brimbank residents can conveniently drop-off a range of unwanted household items for reuse at this event on Saturday 18 June, 9am-2pm. You’ll find it opposite the Brimbank Operations Centre, on Stadium Drive in Keilor Park.
Donate items in good condition and they’ll be donated to local charities West Welcome Wagon which supports asylum seekers and Australian Red Cross. Textile recycler BlockTexx will take recently washed linen such as sheets, towels and pillow cases that cannot be reused. They can then turn it into new products.
This is a no-charge event where residents can drop off items in good condition for reuse.
Accepted items include:
- televisions, computers
- small household appliances (like rice cookers, toasters and kettles)
- furniture (small items that will fit into small apartments)
- bed frames (all sizes)
- homewares, bric-a-brac
- clothing, shoes, backpacks, jewellery, towels and linen.
Only cars, small vans or cars with trailers will be able to drop off items. No trucks or commercial quantities allowed.

Brimbank Mayor Cr Jasmine Nguyen said the day would be a great opportunity for residents to support local charities and sustainability.
“I really encourage residents to look through their homes and bring along items they no longer need that are in good condition, and we’ll do the rest,” she said.
