Overview

You have probably seen them working somewhere, but in a flash, they are gone and out of mind. You have probably donated clothes, books or toys at one of their charity bins. Good and clean previous possessions you want to give to a not-for-profit as a way to help others. They arrive to get those donations each day, in every weather condition possible. They come and go without a thank-you or a need for acknowledgement. They work hard and do their jobs to help the community!

Who are 'they'?

They are donation truck drivers! Men and women who work for the various charities. Their job is to collect all donated items for delivery to partner thrift stores for sorting. Their job is found all over the world, but is barely thought of within the societies in which they operate. But the time has come to shine a light on the hard work they do because of the growing nightmare that is consuming their jobs. That nightmare being...garbage dumping!

The Fantabulously Awesome Life of a Charity Donation Truck Driver is a new revealing look into this unique globally-found job and the truly odd, gross and disturbing things people choose to dump at charity donation bins. From mouldy clothes and evil dolls to dead animals and used needles, there seems to be no limit to what donation truck drivers must deal with daily.

Author Nion Dabtino uses his collection of cell phone pictures, taken over the past two years, to provide readers a glimpse into what items SHOULD NOT be dumped via donation bins. The book also provides insights into how the donation business works, the proliferation of fake for-profit bin and it provides friendly advice on how best to donate.

Equal parts funny, serious and crude (there is some justifiable anger-based swearing in there), The Fantabulously Awesome Life of a Charity Donation Truck Driver will open your eyes to a world you know exists, but never really thought about...until now!

About the Author

Nion Dabtino is a charity donation truck driver from Ontario, Canada. For the past three years, he has worked for one of the country’s largest not-for-profit causes. Nion started taking pictures of odd random items ‘dumped’ at donation bin sites one year into his employment. By no means a professional photographer, his original intention in taking his cell phone pictures was to show disbelieving friends and family the dumped garbage. But after speaking with other donation truck drivers, garbage collectors, donors and reading articles about dumping from Australia, The U.K. and the United States, Nion realized his pictures could become a helpful education tool.
