Awesome, hopefully you reported the plate number to Canberra Connect. Shouldn’t be too hard to unite this piece of scum with a nice fine.

I thought Katy had outlawed charity bins?

She was saving the $10 that it would cost to take it to the tip or the petrol the ute would use going up to the Brindies to dump it by the side of the road. What a turd.

Please say you sent this pic to Canberra Connect.

A couple of years ago I used to take my daughter for driving lessons out on Parkwood Road at the end of Southern Cross drive.

One day as we approached the dead-end, we saw this clown there cheerfully unloading an entire ute load of bulging garbage bags onto the side of the road next to a gate. His unselfconscious manner seemed to indicate that this was simply the sort of thing that one did with ones garbage these days.

I called the Belco police and gave them his vehicle and rego details, but nothing ever appeared to come of it.

An arsehole pretending to be a good samaritan? :)

The dead-end of Parkwood is in NSW, so that would be why nothing came of reporting it to ACT Policing.

Maybe because that’s in NSW, not ACT.

A festively plump bogan in bum pants dumping a good load worth of junk on a charity .. lazy, cheap and inexcusable, they should be reported.

Overweight, 3 qtr tights as pants, unnecessary falcon ute courtesy of a bank loan, Gungahlin, dumping unwanted goods at a charity bin… Yep, all looks in order here. Standard practice. Nothing to see here people.

I love the train of thought here.

“You know what a charity really needs? A dead car battery, a half inflated pool and some cardboard boxes. Homeless people love cardboard boxes, right? Those poor smacky bums will have a field day with this lot, like happy little mice in a dumpster.”

I can see their faces at the sorting center when they see how many cardboard investment properties they’ve just inherited. A proper Samaritan.

If the boxes were going from the kerbside into the back of the ute, it would be treated as theft. Why do the police not take any interest in it the other way around? Are the goods the property of the charity once they sit next to a bin? If so, nothing wrong with this picture except for what is in the boxes is not clothing, nor is it inside the bin, nor is the person doing it out of the goodness of their heart.

Maybe she’s loading, not unloading. Can’t tell from a single frame.

She must be walking backwards if she’s loading.

Looking at the pile of crap over there this morning and the box she has in her hands in the pic is there.

Maybe the boxes are full of very useful things just to big to get in the bins? :-)

There’s a recycling centre at Mitchell, just down the road, where you can dump broken electronics and the like for free. Pass it on.

Calm down. Anyone would think the poor lady was dropping off boxes of dead puppies. You can’t even see what’s in the boxes nor do you know what happens after she gets to the bin.

It doesn’t matter what’s in the boxes – The charity will have to pay to dispose of it properly (along with the rest of the crap dumped there illegally).

Ah, she is littering, dumping her rubbish in the public domain. It is there now, the box she has in her hands and the rest of the crap in the back of her ute. It’s not clothes or blankets it’s rubbish.

She should be vilified.

Looks like a ranga dumping a boatload of policies.

Perhaps actgovco should put up a speed camera, they fix everything.

Charities should set up a dob in a dumper website (or some enterprising website developer company could do this for them) and put on display these ignorant twits who dump their rubbish, then plod can then access this 24/7 and do what they do.

Well I tried to do the right thing and report what I had observed and provide the photographic evidence. I was on hold for 20 minutes with Canberra Connect. The lady who eventually answered didn’t know how to handle the call. She then said I would need to be transferred to another area that closes at 5pm. As it was after 5pm she wanted to give me their direct number to ring back during business hours.

Seriously I went out of my way to get the photo, ring Canberra Connect, wait on hold and now they want me to ring back again!

Just how serious is the ACT Government about this?

Use the online form. https://www.contact.act.gov.au/app/ask You can also attach the photo. This will then give you a reference number you can follow up with.

If you haven’t heard back in two weeks write to your local member and quote the reference number.

You could always call the local Gestapo, I’m sure they’d love a chance to get another arrest, quotas to fill and all that. I have no idea if she broke a law, but practically everything is illegal anyway if you look hard enough, and anyway, you could just call her a suspected terrorist and there won’t even need to be a charge, or a court, or a lawyer!

Otherwise you could pass the info on to the charity, they probably have some process in place.

I guess it comes down to how badly you want to see this woman get a $200 fine for being lazy.

LOL, is this your first experience with Canberra Connect? It seems about right to me.

Thank you bigfeet, that was very useful, if only the Canberra Connect staffer told me about that! Will see what happens with that now.

The Gestapo dragged Jews and political activists and a few inconveniently noisy Christians away in the night and tortured and/or murdered them. It’s a bit lazy to draw the comparison with a woman who may or may not face a small fine, isn’t it?

Also, does that comment qualify as Godwinesque? As opposed to merely grotesque?
