Unfortunately I see this a lot as my little ones are at nursery just up that road, and almost on a daily basis there are bin bags left outside FARA, and a lorry comes up to take them away.
However, I've only seen good quality, mainly branded clothes for sale in that store, so it could be the excesses that do not tend to sell (I can imagine that some families might use FARA as a bit of a dumping ground for all outgrown clothing regardless of condition).
It could be that the bags get re-distributed to other FARA stores, but it is odd that the bin bags are not labelled to assist with this. Or they could simply be taken to clothes recycling and FARA may get a contribution per weight?
If they are actually thrown away, then that is a real shame especially when there are so many out there that are in desperate need of clothing, and would put me off donating to FARA in the future.
I'm following this post as I'm intrigued if someone does have an answer as to what happens to them...if I get the time, I'll pop in to the shop and ask?
