A doozy of dumped rubbish

Spotted this dumped rubbish on the Boulevard yesterday morning. Dumping rubbish is an offence. The Environment Protection Act 1970 at section 45 describes the offence of littering and aggravated littering, and the powers provided under the Act. Council provides 4 free pick ups a year - so you don't need to dump - just dial 9209 6777 to arrange a booking. Having said that, it is not a reasonable expectation of Council to pick up this mess. You can help by reporting what you suspect is dumped rubbish to Council, also on 9209 6777.
