Charities in Australia spend $13 million on waste management each year, sending 60,000 tonnes of unusable donations; that have no value and can’t be recycled; as waste to landfill every year. On the positive side, charities divert over 500,000 tonnes of waste away from landfill every year by their reuse and recycling programs, with Australians generous donating over 285 million products to charities, giving them a second life – and generating over $500 million in revenue towards social welfare programs for Australia’s most disadvantaged.
