THE Salvation Army Family Store at Merimbula is no stranger to having worthless good and even household rubbish dumped at its doors.
But the load discovered on Monday morning was particularly bad, according to one of the store supervisors Diane Parker, who reckons it was 90 per cent rubbish.
The store even fielded complaints from passing shoppers but fortunately in the case the Bega Valley Shire Council came to the rescue and removed the rubbish.
Normally, the store has to pay to get the rubbish removed to the local tip.
“Normally we have to pay tip fees like everyone else and that means we have less in the budget to help people in need,” she said.
“It’s one hand taking from the other.”
The store was however very grateful for the valuable donations of goods and every Thursday sent out a truck to pick up goods from around the region.
Anyone interested in donating items to the store should call 6495 1222.
