charities, including St Vincent de Paul and the Salvation Army, to give them the first choice of items that can then go to those in need or be sold through their charity shopfronts.

We are also the first government in Australia that has partnered with GIVIT to link people in need who have identified that they want something in particular, so we will provide that through the bulky waste collection service as well. Popular items for these charities include furniture, bikes and gardening equipment, which are always able to find a new home.

This is a great result. We hope to see even more items being rehomed, with the service expanding to even more suburbs across Canberra, and I look forward to updating the Assembly as it progresses.
