DUMP­ING rub­bish on the sides of roads and in parks and other public ar­eas is illegal. Townsville City Coun­cil spent $ 30,000 last year to clean up af­ter the lazy peo­ple who do this. There were also 359 com­plaints about dumped rub­bish and other lit­ter. This is a prob­lem that not only af­fects the en­vi­ron­ment but com­mu­nity safety as well. I think that coun­cil should have a kerb­side col­lec­tion ev­ery year so that these lazy peo­ple who can’t get to the dump can have their rub­bish col­lected with no neg­a­tive ef­fect on the com­mu­nity.
