Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - FRONT PAGE -


Rub­bish was our topic last week. Here are two ar­eas that need ur­gent at­ten­tion. Our cur­rent topic is foot­paths and na­ture strips. Go to our web­site to see how to nom­i­nate and vote on this is­sue.

RUB­BISH dumped at Ox­ley Park has topped the list of trou­ble spots se­lected by read­ers and The Stan­dard un­der NewsLo­cal’s Neigh­bour­hood Res­cue cam­paign.

The cam­paign asked you to nom­i­nate and vote, via our web­site, on the most press­ing sites need­ing an ur­gent clean-up.

At Noela Place, Ox­ley Park, res­i­dents pointed to fur­ni­ture and other dis­carded house­hold items left on the lawn, which was part of a pre-ap­proved coun­cil pick-up.

At Boro­nia Rd, St Marys, res­i­dents re­ported lit­ter­ing through bush­land.

A Pen­rith Coun­cil spokesman said res­i­dents were risk­ing a $250 fine for lit­ter­ing in bush­land.

The NewsLo­cal Neigh­bour­hood Res­cue cam­paign aims to help solve prob­lems and im­prove life in our sub­urbs.

The next topic we will be fo­cus­ing on is foot­paths and na­ture strips.

Don’t for­get to send us pic­tures of the prob­lem, de­tails on the lo­ca­tion and your con­tact de­tails.

Sub­mis­sions close at noon on Thurs­day.

To nom­i­nate a prob­lem, go to newslo­­bour­hoodres­cue.
