I have noticed this sight (pictured) in Bur Dubai. The recycling bin is used for donating clothes and useful products for the needy. This box is meant for depositing unwanted clothes and was put up by the Dubai Foundation for Women and Children (DFWAC) for the goodwill of society.

But, it was found that the box was not filled with clothes but by trash like bottles and plastic covers.

I just wanted to say to the people that it is not a problem if you do not donate anything to the needy, but please don’t destroy a facility.
