Rub­bish act

Gatton Star - - YOUR SAY -

ON Mon­day, Septem­ber 17, I ob­served a Blue Care ve­hi­cle pull up across from my drive­way and the oc­cu­pant got out and opened the rear pas­sen­ger door and pro­ceeded to clean out the back of the car, dumped the rub­bish and drove off.

The rub­bish con­sisted of bot­tle tops, tis­sues, lol­lies and wrap­pers, a park­ing re­ceipt from Ip­swich City Coun­cil and a bro­ken hair comb.

We live at 14 Princess Street and have a farm across the road but that is no ex­cuse to dump rub­bish on the side of the road as I am proud of this town and be­lieve ev­ery­one should keep it clean and tidy.

I con­tacted Blue Care and com­plained to the man­ager and was told the per­son con­cerned would re­turn and clean it up. This did not hap­pen and I rang again on Septem­ber 18 and was told the staff mem­ber could not find the rub­bish. Apart from some tis­sues and the lolly wrap­pers/park­ing re­ceipt, which had blown away on Mon­day evening, it was still there Tues­day morn­ing and I cleaned up the rub­bish.

Blue Care as an or­gan­i­sa­tion should be fined for this of­fence and it is then up to them how they re­cover the fine from their em­ployee.
