Dumping in Duffy

By fgzk - 13 September 2011 36

dumping

These are from a block on Eucumbene Drive Duffy. I’ve seen men in white hazmat suits taking stuff away.

I like the couch in the sewage pipe hole that was 10ft deep.

It used to be a cool place to have a fire and a few beers at night with mates.

I don’t think my photos do justice to the amount of crap on site.

It is weird how there is so much dismay and annoyance when people dump their visible rubbish inappropriately yet so many people seem to think it is okay to dump CO2 rubbish in the atmosphere without penalty or without compensating those who will suffer as a result and/or those who will have to clean it up. One thing would be certain – the bogans who dump in our bush will be anti the carbon tax. Then again, one 2CC announcer was today railing against a carbon tax and another was raging against illegal dumpers in Canberra who refuse to be responsible for their own visible rubbish. Media hypocrisy lives on.

what the hell does the carbon tax got to do with illegal dumping? All kinds of environmental vandalism will continue to thrive under a carbon tax. People will still dump. Hoons will be hoons. Utedrivers will still speed. Developers and their mates in government will continue to bulldoze bushland to make way for McMansion suburbs. The carbon tax is not designed to bring on some kind of utopian alternate reality (the nirvana of Bob Brown’s dreams). It will not make unrelated problems magically go away.

I love how you assume people against carbon tax must automatically be pro-dumping, pro-vandalism, anti-environment rednecks.

new rule of blogosphere: first person to mention carbon tax on a topic not remotely related to carbon pricing automatically loses the argument. Most tenuous link or outrageous vilification of pro or anti carbon tax believer per month wins a prize, a la the Mulley Cup. We can call it the ‘Allan Jones we wuz stopped at the border’ prize. Or … the ‘Chip’

Way to try and drag this into another carbon tax debate, mate there’s plenty of threads already there for that, go bug them!

I grew up in adjoining Rivett from 1971 and do not recall any coppers log facility in Weston Creek. Happy to corrected regarding this matter….

it’s images like this, that drive up house prices in Charnwood !

Cnr of Eucumbene Drive and Warragamba Ave Duffy. Entrance on Eucumbene Drive. Are bogons into gardening and house renovations these days?

Coppers logs cant be much of a problem. You will find piles of them in the bush around picnic sites and along the river corridors. Usually not far from where they where removed.

Pity. There’s some useful things there… the furniture but also the builders’ waste, lots of recyclables. Time was people would be keen to get their hands on that stuff.

It’s slobs like these who drive the ‘nanny’ state, and I bet they’re the most vocal critics of a nanny state.

I think plausibly_deniable’s idea is on the right path. As long as the corpses are recycled as pet food. Defeats the purpose to leave them lying there.

This is what happens when you have bogans infesting your suburb. Can’t we have them declared a pest? Then the pig-shooters will have something to do instead of trashing the national parks.

Shhh don’t tell everyone your diabolical plans, or before you know it the Greens will move to declare bogans an endangered species in the territory, and then where will we be? They’ll be the new worm lizards — everyone looking to stop future development will be combing the dirt looking for signs of bogan activity so they could declare their native habitat a protected area or cultural site

I’ve heard, back in the day this fenced off site was a copper log processing factory.
IE where they made all those little round log fences that surround a lot of parks in Canberra.

I wonder if the soil is contaminated with Chromated copper arsenate.

If it is I’d say they have a bigger problem than a little bit of bogon trash.

This is what happens when you don’t have a semi-annual Kerbside Clean-up.

Definitely a Canberra Chronicle in that first photo 😉

Salty 10:16 am 13 Sep 11

Is there still rubbish there? Whereabouts is it?

s-s-a 9:58 am 13 Sep 11

Is this down between Warragamba St and Cotter Rd?

It’s gross, not to mention a pity that it looks like a perfectly good single mattress. Freecycle would love it.

Gross dumping doesn’t have to take place in an out of the way spot tho… there was half a household worth of furniture and junk dumped at the charity bins at Duffy shops on the weekend.
