Don't Dump It

You've Got To Hand It To Them

Recycle with the Salvos but please don't give us or dump your rubbish out the front of our store. It’s really important that the items you donate are quality items.

  • Nationally in 2008, it cost The Salvation Army more than $5.5 million dollars to remove rubbish and clean up goods that have been dumped outside Salvos Stores after-hours and rummaged through by people.
  • Annually the Salvos take the equivalent of 4,000 truckloads of unusable items to the tip.
  • At Ocean Grove we take at least two loads a week to the dump.

This diverts vital funds away from those who most need our support.

The Salvo Op Shop Ocean Grove welcome items in good condition and working order including clothing, furniture, utensils, homewares, manchester, toys and books.
