A shocking photo has emerged of a mountain of second-hand clothing that has been dumped outside of charity donations because people are too lazy to put them in.
Plastic bags and cardboard boxes are sown for the five donation bins in the interior of Sydney, along with loose items of clothing and footwear.
“I’m not sure how bad it got, but I reported it to the Smith family for urgent collection!” read a message on a local Facebook page.
Commentators reacted indignantly and lazy donors read as “terrible” because they made the footpath messy.

Some remarks that slam lazy donors because they have scattered their clothes on the street
“That is absolutely disgraceful and I am ashamed that our community would dump clothing like that,” one comment says.
“It’s pretty simple. When the garbage bin is full, put your donations back in the trunk of your car, call the charity supplier and have it come back for another day. “
“This is not a” charity donation “… it’s flying tips,” another message says.
“It is literally as if a truck has dumped it all there,” another comment says.
“Because people are pigs. They used this as a landfill. So now it’s a problem for someone else to solve, “another message reads.
From January 2020, The Smith Family no longer accepts clothing donations and encourages donors to give clothing to other charities such as the Salvation Army, the St Vincent de Paul Society and the Australian Red Cross.
A spokesperson for The Smith Family told Daily Mail Australia that the company switched from the clothing recycling business and focused entirely on providing educational support to Australian children in need.
“There are 1.2 million Australian children living in poverty and our work to support these children is needed more than ever,” the spokesman said.
“We regret the accumulation of items at Rozelle’s garbage cans and arrange collection as quickly as possible.”
One commentator left a simple message to donors and said that if a collection bin is full, another day will return
