Vandal dumps household rubbish on roadside

Vandal dumps household rubbish on roadside

Published: July 31st 2019

Residents are being urged to help keep our beautiful region clean and tidy by dobbing in anyone seen illegally dumping rubbish.

The call comes after a pile of rubbish was dumped on the corner of the Burnett Hwy and Dooney Smith Road, north of Jambin, on the weekend of 27-28 July.

The rubbish contained packaging material from numerous household items including a light oak Havana bed and bedside tables and charcoal Tivoli 2 seater sofa from Fantastic Furniture, a Blaupunkt television, and a black Marquee 3 piece bistro setting.

Anyone who may have any information about this illegal dumping is encouraged to contact Council on 4992 9500 or enquiries@banana.qld.gov.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 behavior 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.
