KM Earth & Social Care
In addition to running many workshops at no cost to participants, we promote a range of additional charitable activities to meet the needs of local residents and to forge connections with important social missions, and vulnerable or under represented communities across Australia.
Waste Not Textile Drop-Off Point
The Centre is now a collection point for Perth Community Clothing Recycling Wholesaler Pty Ltd. This social enterprise turns waste cloth into rags for local trades, or else sends it to manufacturers overseas for use in rug and furniture manufacture. Local individuals and families can offload their waste textiles, including clothing and linens at the Centre in our dedicated Waste Not purple bin. Kindly ensure that the textiles are clean. Rips and holes are acceptable.
KM Book Exchange
The KM Book Exchange is located just near our front door entry, and is our way of encouraging the sharing and appreciation of second hand books. Our community friends are welcome to “Take a Book or Leave a Book” from our colourful little library. Visit anytime of day or evening. We have books for every age and interest!
Fair Game Collection Point
We’ve partnered with Fair Game to gather unwanted sports equipment and direct them to children in under-resourced communities across Australia, including First Nations and CALD communities. Involvement in physical activity is integral to improving health and education outcomes for children in remote communities, and we can help make this happen!
Used items in good, clean & useable condition that can be donated into our Fair Game donation bin include:
AFL footballs, soccer balls, basketballs
Soccer shin pads
Tee ball bats, mitts and balls
Boxing gloves/focus pads
Large sports bags in good condition eg. cricket bags
Items that can’t be accepted:
Sports clothing and uniforms (except team sets of bibs)
Helmets (baseball, cricket or bike – due to safety reasons)
Trophies or medals
Used drink bottles
Large items such as fitness machines, bikes etc.
Any item that is broken, worn out or not suitable for current use eg. old style tennis rackets.
Give WRITE Kardinya Collection Point
KMCC is now an official collection point for Give Write – a not-for-profit organisation providing school stationary supplies to children in need across metropolitan and regional WA. Just pop your donations (eg. pencils, markers, erasers, pencil cases etc.) in our dedicated light blue donation bin in the foyer!
E-Waste Drop Off
We now collect E-waste in partnership with Secure Computer Recycling & Disposal.
Party Bunting Library
Elevate your next children’s party with some beautiful, handmade and sustainable bunting.
It’s easy….just visit us to choose your design, borrow and return!
Annual Community Toy Swap
A yearly event where local residents can swap their toys and meet friends and neighbours, whilst helping to divert unwanted toys from landfill. All remaining toys are donated to groups at our Centre or local charities such as Little Things for Tiny Tots.
