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…

What’s Your opinion?

Er, I think you’ll find it does actually cost a bit to dump stuff at the tip.

However, I agree whole-heartedly that it’s a low act.

I, of course, bow to Wikipedia’s ineffable knowledge. “Skip jacking” is also a term I wasn’t previously familiar with. Learn something new every day….

Ant – Canberrra Freecycle community is your friend.

You live out Captains Flat way though yeah ? Maybe they have a Qbn group – but in any case google freecycle and there should be a local chapter you can join.

I got rid of 44 gallon drums in less than 24 hours, if you have good clean furniture you should have no dramas

Yeah, but I’m rural, so it would be quite difficult for people to come get it. Plus my driveway is somewhat challenging for normal cars.

I’ll have the ute so I can take it and drop it off to a charity, but I’ve heard so many horror stories of stuff being rejected (which is rather amazing). It really is rather tricky. It’s certainly way too good to be smashed up. I guess it’s a product of living in a wealthy society: recyling non-new stuff is hard.

Wikipedia knows of fly-tipping, p1.

Yeah, Surely it’s not that hard to axe something like that up, and slowly put it in your weekly trash over 1 month, or kindly ask your neighbour to let you chuck a few bits in everyweek if they have room to spare..

I’ve used this approach on big things before myself. Couple of weeks of stuffed full bin gets rid of a lot of smashed up chip board.

Is the term “fly tipping” in relation to doing it “on-the-fly”, or is it a typo and should be “sly tipping”, or are you suggesting that the people dropped it from a low flying aircraft?

Mouth breathers hehehe… some jerk has dumped old mattresses and other crap outside Taylor Primary School too (near the underpass) great for the little ones to play on eh, some people…

at least they chose to dump it near a school that will be demolished. bring on the new parks in kambah – at least them the sound of breaking glass from the old school sites will stop…

This is a good example of what gets me down with society these days (and I’m not even that old) Selfish, careless people.

“It is cheaper and easier for me to dump it on everyone else to clean up or ruin the landscape.”

I’m sure if one of us was to dump a rubbish on their front lawn, they would be the first to in an uproar.

Selfish.

This sort of thing really sh!ts me. What is it with people that they think it’s OK to outsource their waste problem onto the rest of the community.

RSPCA was advertising on the Canberra LJ group for a lounge for their waiting area.

You do see stuff like this a lot… from things like that furniture, to bags of rubbish, LOTS of building waste… it’s so selfish.

That said, I have a bunch of furntiture I need to get rid of… I’ll have the ute tonight as my new mattress has arrived and I’m picking it up (sleep! yahoo!). So it’s a great opportunity to take away these things (old 80s Freedom lounge, a velvet lounge chair, 2 futons, futon bed base, desk…). From what I’m hearing, the charities aren’t very keen to get such things? I’m rural, no kerb to leave them on! So I have to take them somewhere. And they’re current furniture, not rubbish in teh shed covered in dust.

Does anyone know somewhere that wants clean, useable stuff?

PBO 9:21 am 29 May 09

That is so weak. To make it worse, it would have cost nothing to drop at the tip. Anyone from Brand depot have anything to say about it? It looks a lot like a display counter.
