A HUDDERSFIELD charity has become a dumping ground for fly-tippers.
And clearing up all the rubbish and getting rid of it costs Oxfam £10,000 a year.
The Oxfam shop on Colne Road has had a long-standing problem with people rifling through donations and leaving them strewn around the paved area in front of the shop.
But now people are dumping household rubbish there too - including dirty nappies. Staff are again appealing for people not to leave donations outside the shop on Sundays, which is when the main problems happen.
Shop manager Lisa Morris said: "Rubbish from kitchen bins and even dirty nappies are getting mixed up with donations of clothes - leaving a disgusting problem for staff to clear up.
"We have to deal with broken glass, rotting food and even garden waste.
"Once the clothes become wet or mixed up with this kind of rubbish we need to dispose of them - which costs us money."
Ms Morris said some parents were even putting their children in the textile disposal bins to search through the clothes in them.
She added: "We are a shop, not a recycling centre."
People are urged to take their donations to the shop from Mondays to Saturdays, between 9am and 4.15pm.
Ms Morris added: "We could open on Sundays if people volunteered to run the shop for us.
"That would be the ideal solution," she said.
Kirklees Council's waste disposal site in Emerald Street at Hillhouse is open seven days a week and rubbish should be dumped there.
