Tip fees rip off!

By dogsbody 1 November 2010 31

What a thieving bunch of bastards, i took a small trailer load of household rubbish to the tip at Mitchell this morning , I got charged $30 for the pleasure of leaving it there.

This is something I already pay rates for. In future it will be dumped outside Stanhope’s house, and I would encourage everyone to do the same, the smellier the better, what a ripoff.

What’s Your opinion?

Keep it up GBT and this year your Body Corporate fees will be up $100-00 to cover the cost of … you guessed it … paying someone to come and take your junk to the tip.

Yeah, so you dump it at another block of flats, get with the program mate! Sheesh!@@

Couple of weekends back I took a half load of green waste and a half load of household (6×4), dropped off the green for free and still got charged $20.00 for the rest. Aaargh.

Just dump it in Stanhopeless’ car spot outside the front doors of the Legislative Assembly.

Yes farnakler, the littlies could finally make sensible use of their can-swigging bogan parents.

This is sort of on topic but I wonder how much money people get in SA for taking their cans and bottles back to the depots? I always see it on cans, etc and think there must be kids in Adelaide who are making some decent money collecting cans/bottles from sporting events, concerts, etc. I remember as a child the gov’t used to pay for recycled cans but it was really piddly like 20c a kilo; not enough to warrant much effort. 10c per bottle/can though would be a decent incentive to children would it not?

Just do what others do. Leave your trash piled up against the side of a charity bin. Simple really. You become the charity. No need for those pesky tip fees.

Yeah just add it to the mess at Kippax at the moment.. Wish I took a pic last night. The “dump” pile was at least 1m high and spread out on the whole footpath near the bins.

It is a pretty pile down there at the moment. I also felt a pang of regret that I did not take a pic of that monument to the Western Belconnen Bogan.

Our council (Yass)did a really good clean up day a few years ago, you put your junk out on the kerb people had a day to take what they wanted then the council came and picked up the rest, I got to get rid of heaps of junk and get a whole heap of new junk.

I wish they would make it a regular thing every couple of years would do.

Oh crap did I really say a local council did something good? Self flagellation time again.

Queanbeyan does a couple of kerbside pickups of your old junk each year. Just another reason why Canberra will never be more than simply the gateway to Queanbeyan.

Yep, much like the River Styx is the gateway to the underworld (read: hell)

In Canberra’s case we could rename the lake to ‘Stynx’.

I’m pretty sure your rates only pay for the COLLECTION of rubbish, not the free disposal of, willy nilly.

The rest of Canberra dumps their crap on the side of the Monaro Highway.

Cats, landfill, dildos, carcasses of all descriptions, big arse bags of weed, 80s furniture, large piles of feces – I’ve seen it all.
