A woman who passed away after she became stuck in the opening of a charity bin has been identified.

Alarrah Lawrence, 33, was looking inside a Good Sammys clothing donation bin at Stockland Baldivis Shopping Centre, Western Australia when she became “trapped and unable to remove herself”, police told reporters.

The tragedy took place at about 1:40 am, and her body was later found at around 5 am on Tuesday.

Reports claim the mother was standing on a plastic bucket to reach inside the bin, until the bucket slipped beneath her feet and left her trapped.

The Australian reported her body remained “half in, half out” of the bin, with just a small pile of clothing on the ground beneath her.

Rockingham Detective Senior Sergeant Andrew says police believe Ms Lawrence died from asphyxiation.

Ms Lawrence’s partner penned a devastating tribute to his “soulmate” on Facebook in the hours after her death.

“This is a cruel world can’t believe your gone devastated word can’t explain I’m going to miss U I just wish I could tell U I love U 1 more time my soulmate [sic],” he wrote.

“Raining sadness for my family,” another family member said. “Alarrah you won’t be forgotten.”

Ms Lawrence leaves behind a 15-month-old son.

Police do not think Ms Lawrence’s death is suspicious.

Sadly enough, her death follows just three months after a 43-year-old mother was found dead in a charity bin on the Gold Coast.

Mikki O’Shea, was tragically found trapped in the bin, near a shopping centre in Burleigh Heads in April.

At the time, Queensland Police said firefighters had to cut the woman’s body free, after the bin lid had come down onto Ms O’Shea.
