Diabetes Canada is asking residents to hold off on textile bin donations until after the COVID-19 pandemic has passed.
Current bins are overflowing and some have become a dumping ground for well-meaning citizens who want to support the organization.
However, due to physical distancing orders and non-essential services being closed, pick-up of textile donations by Diabetes Canada from homes and bins stopped on March 23rd.
In some instances, garbage is also being dumped at donation bins which poses a serious health and safety issue.
Residents are asked to keep their donations until business resumes.
