Lifeline’s wheelie easy spring clean-up

IT'S time for a spring clean and Lifeline is making it easy.

Lifeline is offering to temporarily provide 240 litre wheelie collection bins to Sunshine Coast and Caboolture residents to help with the big clean-up.

Lifeline business manager Ian Ezzy said the bins could be delivered to people's houses, collected a week later, making spring cleaning easier and more convenient.

"Often at this time of year with the warmer weather approaching, people start to de-clutter their homes," he said.

"We encourage individuals to think before they throw their old possessions out. Maybe somebody else can use it."

Lifeline encourages donations of reusable items such as clothing, books, kitchen crockery, children's toys, accessories, bric-a-brac and furniture - usable items still in good condition.

Anything that was too large to fit into the bins could still be donated when the bins were being collected.

"Simply give us a call to let the truck drivers know there will be extra items for collection and they will make sure they leave space on the truck or organise another time to collect them; it really is a simple and smooth process," Mr Ezzy said.

"The quality items Lifeline collects from these bins are sold through Lifeline shops to help fund our 24-hour crisis line and counselling services."

To order a Lifeline wheelie collection bin, call Lifeline Kunda Park on 5409 1400 during business hours.
