TWO brothers are pleading with the public to stop dumping rubbish on a block of land in Southern River owned by their late brother.
Lawrie and Trevor Prestage received a letter from the City of Gosnells last month asking them to remove rubbish dumped on the property.
The land had belonged to their brother Ralph and his wife Lois before they died, Ralph in 2015 and Lois earlier this year.
The family cleared rubbish from the block, most of which was unsuitable for a verge collection.
“There were car bodies, tyres, 44 gallon drums, paint in tins and building rubble,” he said.
Lawrie said the land had not been cleared for 15 years and the overgrowth enabled people to dump.
“When it was cleared, they could be seen throwing their rubbish, but over the last 10 to 15 years they can hide their rubbish in there,” he said.
The land is at the centre of a dispute with the Western Australian Planning Commission (WAPC).
