Rub­bish dumped on road­side

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South Perth -

A LAWLER Street res­i­dent says the street verge has be­gun to look like a “dump site”.

The South Perth res­i­dent said a pile of rub­bish had been grow­ing “by the day” on the verge.

The res­i­dent, who did not want to be named, said the cul­prits dump­ing the rub­bish came from an Ac­cess Hous­ing unit on Dou­glas Street and said they would just chuck the rub­bish over the fence.

“It has been an on­go­ing is­sue,” she said.

“It is il­le­gal, a fire haz­ard and looks dis­gust­ing. The pile just keeps get­ting big­ger.”

She wanted somebody to put a sign up as a re­minder that dump­ing was il­le­gal.

In a state­ment, Ac­cess Hous­ing said it was un­able to com­ment on spe­cific ten­ancy cases.

“Ac­cess Hous­ing has been made aware of an aes­thetic mat­ter at this prop­erty and have had con­tact from neigh­bours,” the state­ment said.

“There is rub­bish lo­cated on the rear verge and we are ad­dress­ing this by hav­ing the rub­bish re­moved from the rear and the lawns mowed.”

The City of South Perth would not com­ment on the is­sue as they said it was an in­va­sion of the ten­ant’s pri­vacy.
