On March 4, the metal guards were bent back in order to cut the padlocks off both bins.

Uniting Outreach Mandurah spokeswoman Shirley Joiner was frustrated by the incidents.

‘It’s a nuisance to us really because all it does is take resources away from the community.’ she said. ‘This time nothing was taken so it’s a waste.’

She said the cost of ordering a truck from the Good Samaritan head office in Canning Vale to fix the damage would be better spent on those who needed it.

‘We don’t turn anyone away ” they just have to ask for help and it is given,” she said.

She said cameras installed near Good Samaritan Bins at other sites had resulted in prosecutions.

Cameras are installed at Uniting Outreach Mandurah.
