There are loads of ways to give your unwanted stuff a new life. From an environmental perspective, recycling your second-hand goods extends the life of the items, and avoids the need for more resources to go into the manufacure of a new product.
Drop is off at your local op shop - Op shops receive your unwanted goods and sell them cheaply to support charities focused at helping our local community. They are generally staffed by volunteers and always appreciate contributions. You might even find a bargain for yourself while you're there!
