Fly tipping Mt Painter

By Pommy bastard 29 May 2009 38

Whilst walking the dogs this morning I came across this pleasant sight. Think about this. Someone had to lad this into a vehicle capable of carrying it, drive it to this spot, (probably in the dark) dump it, and either smash it up there, or leave it for other mouth breathers to smash up. Would it have been any less bother to take it to the salvos? Is it too much trouble to take it to the Mitchell recycling place? Was it fun for you, did you get a thrill out of dumping it there.

What sort of rancid, dim witted, unthinking, low life, scumbucket would go to that amount of trouble to dump it there? You cannot get to the place without having to drive, you couldn’t dump it without making an effort.

To smash the glass there, a place where I walk my dogs, would have earned you a lifetime of pain if I had caught you in the act.

Oh, not that I’m making accusations or intimating any association, but there was a substantial amount of paperwork lying around, which all seems to be associated with “Alterations Now”, including several “announcement requests” for Brand Depot’s customer service announcements. Makes you think though…

Stuff being dumped and left in and near charity bins is a problem. This wasn’t as serious when rate payers were able to dump their rubbish free.

Most of the ‘stuff’ I see dumped near charity bins *could* be recycled appropriately IF the arse dumping it could be bothered in investing a bit more of their time.

Lazy ignorant people take NO responsibility for their actions and dump.

ant the charities will probably take your stuff, except the mattresses.

Just ring salvos at belconnen or mancare at fyshwick – they are the big ones with furniture I think.

mancare at Fyshwick would be convenient, I’ll see if they’re interested. I’ve heard of charities knocking back normal furniture, although they all seem to take clothes (god knows I’ve given anglicare heaps!).

Earlier in the year there were reports from the Smith Family and the Salvation Army of lots of non useful junk being dumped at their facilities. I still think if transfer stations were put in places that were relatively convenient and there were no charges for rubbish dumping and special charges for things like electronics, whitegoods and matresses they would be less likely to end up dumped at Charities’ facilities and less likely to be dumped in the bush.

Of course it will not stop some dumping stuff but reduce the incentive for others.

You’re not being discriminated against! You’re being villified.

My kids actually saw this item getting dumped. They were too far away to get the license plate before the cretin sped off…

Apparently it was a white ute, some sort of dual cab (as described by an 11 year old). Wish I’d been there…..

Wouldn’t it have been easier to dump this stuff in Clift St, Richardson, and scrawl “In memory of Megan and Steven” on the side?

I’ve been told that makes it acceptable.

Top post Ari! You is chooooooooice!

Well they will and spread out over time it would probably work out the same if it was paid for through our rates. I don’t believe tip fees help in the reduction of rubbish. It has to go somewhere.

didnt the alterations place at brand depot close down?

It’s amazing, i live on the North side you cannot walk for more than 3-4 blocks without seeing someones rubbish dumped either in public parks or up lane ways. seems that it must be too hard to find a hopper or take it away than it is just to dump it & leave it up to some one else usually parks & gardens but no sooner than they clean is it seems to make n new site to put more? i think that some people around just seem to use it as their own personal cleanup service.
or then i don’t know if some of it is related to the druggos, or its the stuff that the dealer won’t take for a shot. so some poor innocent bastard has just lost his playstation, stereo or something else easily stolen for nothing.

Astonishing… somebody has gone to so much trouble, for so little point! Surely, given the effort that all must have taken, it would actually have been easier and lazier to just take it to the tip or give it away? This is getting depressing – I’m 26, and I don’t understand the youth of today!!

I know I will go to hell for giggling at that comment by Ari…

Rudd’ed, I like that term! I’m Rudding up my mattress today (except it cost a bit more than the RuddBucks covered). Cep’t the mattress actually needed replacing cos it was old and squashed, it’s not an Aspirational (Ruddinational?) purchase. My back aspired to not hurting any more.

If anyone has recently Rudd’ed up their plasma from a 54inch to a 60inch and needs to give away the old one, I’ll take it.
