City of filth. Charity bin disgrace returns

By johnboy - 26 December 2012 34

charity bins

So this is what Dickson looks like this boxing day morning.

Congratulations to every lazy dirty bogan who was so keen to “give to charity” they couldn’t be arsed doing their illegal dumping at the tip.

You walk amongst us and for reasons passing understanding we’re not allowed to brand your foreheads for easy identification.

What’s Your opinion?

Perhaps the most useful form of volunteering in Canberra at the moment would be to pick up after these scum!

I noticed this morning as I arrived at Anytime Fitness at Tuggers Hyperdome many large bags of clothing had been dumped outside the St Vinnies shop. Most of these people probably thought they were doing a good deed for the less fortunate but most of it cannot be resold and has to be taken to the dump.

That’s really gross. By now peeps know if its not in the actual bin or dropped inside the store its going to the tip.

Easy solution. CCTV facing all donation bins.

Am I missing something here? We have ten clothing bins, some of which appear to be full, and a heap of clothing piled up on the ground. If the charities dont want the clothing…lose the bins! If the overflow of charitable donations raise the ire of some RA bleeding hearts…lose the bins!

I have a heap of decent ‘old’ clothing that I want to get give away shortly…RA suggestions please??

How Canberran.

Get rid of the bins already, or at the very least put some cameras up and get a few number plates to send infringement notices to.

I’d be willing to bet most of that stuff comes from people who (a) had some spare time on hols to clean out their wardrobes and drawers of old clothes, (b) bagged it and took it down to the charity bins to do a good deed by donating it, (c) found the filthy useless things were all full because they never get emptied anywhere near often enough by the charities that ostensibly run them (d) couldn’t find a real garbage bin because the ACT Govt has seemingly removed them all to make garbage truck drivers’ jobs easier (e) got the irrits with all this stupidity and slung their crap on the ground cos the Boxing Day sales were starting without them. Or something like that.
Solutions? Get rid of the bins – but morons will simply create pyramids of junk where the bins used to be. Centralise the bins – not working so well at Cooleman Court (anyone got a photo of what that looks like today?). Have regular kerbside collections maybe? You could put a special plastic bag in every letterbox twice a year; residents fill that up with old clothes and leave on the kerbside for pickup by second hand clothing resellers or charities (whoever has the initiative to get there first).

If it doesn’t fit in the bin take it to your nominated charity when it is open…and perhaps let them know their bin is too full.

‘I shouldn’t have to figure out or do things myself’…how canberran indeed.

The point is they have to go in the bins. If they are not in the bins then it is littering and the charities cannot use the product. Though to be honest most of the s*** that is dumped is useless anyway so will end up as bags of rags, so better than the tip I suppose.

Well, peeps who read RA do. Think you’ll find these grubs operate on a different/lower level of awareness.

Like CGN said, if it won’t fit in a bin, hand it over at the shop. If the quality is such that you’re not prepared to hand it over face-to-face, then dispose of it yourself. It’s not rocket surgery.
