Household items dumped 10 minutes from free landfill
A PILE of rubbish was dumped on the corner of the Burnett Hwy and Dooney Smith Road, north of Jambin, last weekend.
The rubbish contained packaging material from numerous household items, including a light oak Havana bed and bedside tables and charcoal Tivoli two seater sofa from Fantastic Furniture, a Blaupunkt television, and a black Marquee three piece bistro setting.
Anyone with information about this illegal dumping is encouraged to contact Council on 4992 9500 or firstname.lastname@example.org .au or contact the Department of Environment and Science on 1300 130 372 or via www.qld.gov.au/litter or illegaldumping @des.qld.gov .au.
As no charges apply to the disposal of household waste in Banana Shire, and a waste disposal facility is located just a 10 minute drive away, this type of behaviour is particularly disappointing.
The offender is encouraged to clean up this waste to avoid clean-up costs. It is an offence to dump waste material unlawfully and fines can be issued to offenders.
