This is what I see every Monday morning a I cycle to work: mountains of clothes and other donated items spilling onto the footpath of the Salvo’s in Abbotsford. A lot of rubbish is dumped over the weekend along with worthy donated items and theft is also an issue. The Salvos encourage people to come in and donate when the shop is open, but this is not possible for everyone.
Vandalism is also a problem and the donation bins retain evidence of being set on fire. It is a huge opp shop and has been thoroughly reviewed by the Vintage Detective. It’s just a shame that they have to spend some of their money cleaning up after the people who are too selfish and lazy to take their rubbish to the tip.
