Illegal dumping continues in Eastern Bay

The community is being asked to help identify illegal rubbish dumpers across the region.

The call comes following a spate of illegal dumping in the past month, particularly along Tahuna Road.

Council Community Regulation Manager Graeme Lewer says he’s furious about the lack of respect for our environment that he’s seen in the past week alone.

He says while most residents dispose of their rubbish responsibly, there are a few spoiling it for the rest.

Mr Lewer says people might think they’re saving themselves some dollars by dumping illegally, but they’re putting that cost back on to the ratepayers, and on the environment.

Anyone who sees illegal dumping taking place is asked to record the vehicle registration number and any other information that may assist in identifying those responsible.
