Letter: Charity drops not the dump
I am a little concerned with the volume of stuff gathering around the CLOTHING donation bins in town. I have been told that all items that are not clothing get taken to the dump, regardless of what it is. This comes out of the coffers of the charity. I have seen a barbeque, coffee tables, large toys etc. sitting at these bins. We have two wonderful thrift shops here in Morinville for people who want to donate their items. Salvation Army and Goodwill have collection depots in St. Albert, and most charities will arrange pick up of useable items. If people are simply getting rid of trash, then it needs to make its way to the dump on their own dime. Perhaps you could include something about this in the news?
