Parks Victoria on the trail of rubbish dumpers
Wednesday 23 April, 2014
Parks Victoria’s appeal to the public to help stop rubbish dumping in their parks is paying off.
Bairnsdale based Rangers Matt Palmer and Matt Holland are currently following up on leads regarding the identity of those responsible for a large pile of household rubbish dumped in Blond Bay.
This follows a member of the general public supplying information about its location and contents.
Ranger Matt Holland says the dumping of rubbish shows a total lack of respect for both the park’s environment and the many local people who visit it.
“There was a whole trailer load of rubbish dumped here including a microwave, vacuum cleaner, fishing rod, cane basket and lots of household items.
Hopefully with assistance from the public we will find out who these people are that treat our parks and reserves like rubbish tips.
We would like to get the message out loud and clear that we will follow up these incidents and prosecute those responsible.”
Another load of rubbish was also recently found dumped in Mossiface Bushland Reserve, near Bruthen; a trailer load of tyres, an old TV and other household rubbish.
Parks Victoria staff would be very interested to hear from anyone who has information about this or any other rubbish they find dumped in parks or reserves.
All information will be treated confidentially.
