On site, Scharl shows our newspaper one of the full rubbish bins not far from his house.

The entrepreneur is outraged that

donated food is being thrown away


In the rubbish there was also a bag filled with groceries, canned goods and sweets, which had probably been handed out in the nearby Dorfen table.

"I'm glad we heard about the matter," said Ruth Wildgrube, chairwoman of the

any knowledge

of the fact that whole bags were thrown away.

At the table, people will "now think about how we can counteract this and what can be done".

these people at all, says Scharl.

"Some donate, and others just throw it away," says the Dorfener.

rubbish bins and dispose of


things left behind


During the short conversation on Bahnweg, passers-by who live in the district also came by.

They confirmed Scharl's observations: "Yes, this has been going on for months."
