    I do this all the time. Arrange to pick something up and leave the cash, or leave something out for people. Never had an issue.

    The other thing with donating to charity is that there is just too much - particularly with kids clothes & toys. Much ends up being disposed of by the charities or in some cases clothing is shipped off shore in bulk to other nations in need.

    If you can find someone who will genuinely use & appreciate your items, that's a better option. The charities will still get way more than they can use productively.

    A lot of the bins near me are for profit bins.

    Our local council has banned them for being a magnet for rubbish, I assume this was in conjunction with the charities themselves. You can still donate but it is at their door with staff keeping an eye on you. It's hard to get a close park though and they often just have a wheelie bin out there so when I have a bootload including misc household goods it is even worse.

    I've picked up and left the money before (usually under $5 though) but I usually use the fb pages and don't do much selling, just buying.

    I have noticed the same thing in my area. I was thinking about it recently when trying to donate some toys.

    In answer to the OP, I would not be willing to give an unknown person my address if they knew I wasnt going to be home. I have known too many people had breakins etc and suspect it was from facebook so I am paranoid about such things.
