Recycling

Help us deliver our programs
Your kidneys are your body's recyclers and you can do the same good in everyday life by recycling your old car, mobile phones and even used stamps.

By donating the money to support our work, you’ll be helping save and improve the lives of people with kidney disease. Your contribution to our fundraising efforts will be very much appreciated. 

Clothes

Recycle your preloved clothing
 
Recycle your unwanted clothing and help us make a difference! 
Kidney Health Australia’s recycled clothing programs play an important part in our fundraising efforts. You can support the environment and support us in a number of ways.
 
Recycled Clothing bins:
Working in partnership with the Smith Family,  Kidney Health Australia collects pre loved clothing  from our  branded bins which are  located throughout the ACT. We also have bins located in Kew, Victoria.
 
Simply look for our logo proudly displayed on Kidney Health Australia  bins.
 
Recycled Clothing Collection:
If you live in the Melbourne metropolitan area,  keep an eye out in your letter box for a Kidney Health Australia collection bag.    Our contractor will collect your filled bag on  an appointed day.

For information regarding collection days,  please call 03 9558 6448.

Mobile phones

Collect unwanted mobile phones at your home, workplace or school and donate them to us for recycling. We’ll arrange for you to receive a satchel or a collection box to gather them in.

Not only are you clearing your drawers and supporting our work, but you’re also helping the environment. If you like the idea, tell your friends about the program.

For collection details, please contact volunteering@kidney.org.au.

Cars

Don't know what to do with your old car? If you live in the metropolitan area of Adelaide or Melbourne, your car can be collected and fully recycled. The funds raised will be accepted as a donation and you’ll receive an income tax receipt for the value of your contribution.

To arrange collection, please contact 1800 454 363.

If you reside in other areas, call your local car recycler to arrange collection and then send us your recycling cheque as a donation.

Used stamps

Here’s a fun way for you and your family, friends and work colleagues to help our cause. If you receive letters and cards from lots of friends or have access at work to large amounts of mail, start collecting the good used stamps.

Just cut off the corner of the envelope with the stamp, leaving plenty of room around it so the postmarks are legible. Then put the stamps in an envelope and mail them to us at:
