Not a rubbish tip
TWO single bed mattresses and one double mattress were left abandoned outside Vinnies in Leongatha on Thursday morning.
“The state the mattresses were in was absolutely filthy,” volunteer Geoff Hoghton said.
“We don’t accept mattresses at all.
“We do sell mattresses but we get them in brand new.
The items were dumped in a spot where cameras could not reach.
The mattresses were taken straight to the tip which cost Vinnies fair expenses.
“Mattresses are one of the most expensive things to dump at the tip.
“Some people just use us as a dumping ground.” Mr Hoghton said.
The items were first spotted by local resident Sharon Smith.
“The smell wafting from it was not pleasant,” Ms Smith said.
