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.
