What is Clothing Collection?

clothing-collection-truck

If you find yourself cleaning out cupboards, wardrobes or sheds and are left with items that are too good to throw away, then why not give them to Diabetes SA!

Diabetes SA has a collection service which facilitates the collection of pre-loved clothing, small household goods and furniture. Our distinctive white and blue Diabetes SA trucks make their way around metropolitan Adelaide and selected country regions collecting items from households.

Diabetes SA is a member of The National Association of Charitable Recycling Organisations (NACRO).

How you can support us

There are a number of ways you can make a donation and in-turn benefit our organisation:

1. Call for a collection

Our trucks can come to your home or business within the metropolitan area and collect your goods.

Just call 8234 1977 (option 6) and speak to one of our friendly operators who will assist you to schedule a collection. You can also email  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Alternatively complete our collection request form.

2. Bag Drops

On regular intervals in your local area you will receive a blue bag in your letterbox and attached there will be a flyer with instructions on what to do. This will tell you the day when we will return to collect your bag and asks you to leave it out visible from the street by 7am on the day of collection. Usually there is around a week for you to fill your bag before we return to pickup.

When you receive a blue bag there are a few things we would like to you to remember:

  • Please leave your bag in a position where it can be seen from the street otherwise we may miss the bag and need to return to collect it
  • Please tie up your bag once filled, and seal any boxes, as it will save our drivers a little time when loading the truck
  • Please do not overpack bags as they may split when our drivers pick them up. Feel free to leave out extra garbage bags or similar and we will collect them at the same time as the blue bag, just label them “Diabetes SA”.

Occassionally there can be a few reasons your bag was not collected. If any problems call us on 8234 1977 (option 6) and we will collect your items as soon as possible.

3. Attended Donation Centre (ADC)

Diabetes SA has developed a concept in providing the general public an opportunity to bring a donation at a time which suits them. Our Attended Donation Centre is located at our premises at 159 Sir Donald Bradman Drive, Hilton. There is a bell which you can press for assistance and one of our staff will help you with your donation. 

For more information refer to our dedicated Attended Donation Centre page.
