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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Maybe because that’s in NSW, not ACT.

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

An arsehole pretending to be a good samaritan? 🙂

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.

I thought Katy had outlawed charity bins?

Report them – you have the number plate

Golden-Alpine 3:15 pm 15 Sep 12

Sorry, taken today, Saturday 15/9/12 at 12:10pm.

arescarti42 3:09 pm 15 Sep 12

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.

That’s just lazy and ignorant.
