we tend to offer clothes/shoes etc. to the dustmen who are always grateful or often with the old baby clothes will keep them in the car and simply stop when you spot a mother and baby- at least you know where it is going!

It's a British term for either trash collector or garbage man. Hense, from dust to dust ... :twisted:

The topic is probably revived by a spammer but in regions you can just give them to the garbage collectors when the truck comes. This is a low-pay hard work, so they will find a way to use or monetize your donation.
