Rubbish dumped at charity store

IT’S long frustrated local charities, but now police are hunting two men who dumped a load of rubbish at a Tamworth charity store (see picture).

In the latest incident, CCTV footage shows the men pulling up in a white Holden ute at the St Vincent De Paul store on Duri Rd on May 5.

The men tossed unwanted items near the charity bins but none of it could be used by the charity organisation, which was forced to hire a skip bin to remove the items.

It comes after public appeals by similar charity organisations earlier this year which are fed up with garbage and broken items being tossed into charity bins, leaving a hefty clean-up bill and damaging other donated goods. Tamworth police have released the image in the hope of tracking down the men, and warn that disposing of rubbish in charity bins is an offence.

Anyone with information on the identity of the men is urged to contact Tamworth police.
