Police say the discovery of a woman inside a charity donation bin in Baldivis was a tragic accident.

Officers were called to the scene on Norseman Approach around 5am on Tuesday after a member of the public made the grim find.

The woman, aged in her 30s, was declared dead the scene.

Rockingham Detective-Senior Sergeant Andrew Elliott said they are treating the death as non-suspicious.

The woman is yet to be formally identified.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
