Man’s body found in clothing bin

A MAN’S body has been discovered inside a charity clothing bin in Sydney’s inner city.

According to police, the body was found by a passerby at around 5am on Wednesday inside the charity bin at Rosebery.

It is understood the man’s body was protruding from the bin when it was discovered.


His identity is unknown at this stage.

Police are chasing several leads, including that it could have been misadventure, which is a death caused by a person accidentally while performing a legal act without negligence or intent to harm.


Locals are also being interviewed.

“They’ve been talking to the construction workers across the road at the construction site, trying to piece together what happened here,” police told ABC on Wednesday.

“They also need to try to figure out who this man is.”

There are reports the man may have been seeking shelter from Sydney’s wet weather overnight.
