A COOGEE resident is calling on charities to redesign donations bins to stop twits from ransacking them and making a mess.
Kevin Tunnicliff says the donation bins at Coogee Beach reserve get broken into three times a week by “cockroaches”.
“They easily break the padlocks or dive down the chutes to get into them,” he says. “I go for a walk in the early morning and have confronted those lowlifes, but they were very aggressive and use excuses like ‘I’ve dropped a ring in there’.”
“It’s too easy for them and the car park is an absolute mess most weeks: council are left to clean up the scattered clothes.
The Salvation Army estimated in 2009 that illegal dumping was costing it $6 million a year across Australia.
