Rub­bish pile not all our fault: res­i­dents

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South Perth -

A DOU­GLAS Street res­i­dent says not all the rub­bish on a verge on Lawler Street comes from the Dou­glas Street unit block as other peo­ple from the neigh­bour­hood have been adding to the pile.

The res­i­dent of the units, who didn’t want to be named, rang the Gazette in re­sponse to the ar­ti­cle Rub­bish dumped on road­side, pub­lished last week.

She said some of the res­i­dents had men­tal health is­sues, which were man­aged, and didn’t have fam­ily around, but they had a won­der­ful re­la­tion­ship with Ac­cess Hous­ing, who man­age the units.

She de­scribed as an “in­sult” a sug­ges­tion that they erect a sign warn­ing that dump­ing rub­bish was il­le­gal.

The res­i­dent said they were sim­ply pre­par­ing for a City of South Perth hard waste col­lec­tion, due on Novem­ber 3.

“If the City of South Perth doesn’t want us to put rub­bish out this early, they should say so, be­cause no­body wants to get fined,” she said.

Last week, the City of South Perth said they would not com­ment on the is­sue.
