Dirty Erindale

By goog - 5 October 2011 15

Has anyone noticed how much rubbish there is around Erindale, in particular the strip where the restaurants and takeaways are ?

I was there on Sunday afternoon and was really disturbed by how bad the area looked. When I asked one of the people in the bottle shop what was going on he said it was ‘ always like this’.

Who is responsible for cleaning this area? Can anyone tell me?

What’s Your opinion?

It’s another case where a bit of prevention is better than needing a cure…..?

It’s not just Erindale, have you seen civic or woden or belco or along the parkway or the monaro hwy or pretty much anywhere in the ACT lately, it’s disgusting.

Wrong. Erindale is so much worse. In fact it’s an absolute $hithole. Don’t blame Maccas, blame the hoodie-wearing grubs who inhabit the area,

Try the ACT Govt online reporting system fix my street: https://www.contact.act.gov.au/app/answers/detail/a_id/1146. I’ve contacted them twice now to mow public land and clean off some graffiti and both times the problems were fixed within the week.

Nope – Everything from the road verge is privately leased land at that site – it is the property owners responsibility to clean up any rubbish in the car park (along with the twats who shouldn’t drop it in the first place). If you report it to fix my street all they (should) do is remind the owner of their responsibilities under the lease.

+1 to this. ACT Govt, to their credit have been very responsive to this sort of stuff.

I recall the old days where Macas used to get their staf to clean the carparks around their stores…Dont think it happens nearly as much now.

Macdonalds must be one of the worst road side polluters. Anyone who drives past Gold Creek Village must notice the difference between BM (Before Macdonalds) and AM (After Macdonalds). ACT Govt must be furious having to do all those extra wrapper and container cleanups along the roads around Maccers.

I reckon if you put a $20 deposit on the wrappings from McDonald’s the problem would disappear overnight.

I have been told that the strip where the restaurants and takeaways are is what is going to be transferred to Crawford Street in Queanbeyan. That is why all the work is being done there.

as for all the rubbish it is going with the buildings.

Do the business owners know about this?

Register Canberra as a clean up site on Clean Up After the Grots.. I mean Clean Up Australia Day.

… now they have reduced the parking by closing off the area across the road that it will only get worse.

Probably another initiative to encourage the use of public transport when picking up your pizza/Kingsleys/slab order…

Its a pity that area is such a dogs breakfast, there are so many great restuarants there & now they have reduced the parking by closing off the area across the road that it will only get worse.

Yep it usually looks grotty. Often wonder why each storeholder don’t spend 4 mins in picking up the stuff. But they don’t as its the GUMMINTS job to do that.

carnardly 12:02 pm 05 Oct 11

it wouldn’t need cleaning if grots didn’t chuck their stuff everywhere.

Probably ACT Govt though.
