Illegal Dumping

“ThisIsAName” has had enough of illegal dumping on a vacant block in Franklin.

Last September a big tip truck was actually caught and the owner forced to remove the industrial scale mess.

But there was no fine. Our source is also pretty sure he’s seen the same truck now out and about with no numberplate on to avoid getting busted in future.

Yesterday the above ute was dumping on the site. Good to see he’s using a broom to get his tray nice and clean.

So to our illegal dumping community a reminder. People have cameras these days.

Here’s the rest of the pix:

Why dump on private land? I notice the well-heeled residents of Elimatta Street in Reid dump their lawn clippings across the road in Reid Oval car park…

But isn’t it good to know you can dump stuff on *private* land without having to worry about anything!

No more tiresome trips to the tip!

Not me, but I would like to know where in Franklin this new recycling drop off is located? Just in case.

and might any of the media think it worth running with?

Surely the opposition would like to point out a failing in the government’s services?

So who have you called to report this? TAMS?

Multiple calls have been made: several cases of dumping have been reported by various witnesses.

The City Rangers have been called several times. From what I’ve been told, the responses have been “we’ll look into it” and “there may be a valid reason for dumping stuff there”. The response I got was “nothing can be done because the waste has been dumped on a private lease”. The rangers don’t have access to the leaseholder’s contact details, so they can’t get in touch with the owner.

The police don’t respond to illegal dumping, and ACTPLA can only issue notices to the owner to clean the place up.

It’s ridiculous that (among other things), a lack of information sharing between govt agencies makes an obvious offence much harder to resolve…

Who owns the land?

How do you know this guy doesn’t own the land?
