Litter left on corner patch
Harry Patel can’t get over the nerve of some people.
The Porirua man owns land on Burton Pl, off Commerce Cres, in Waitangirua and last Monday discovered a couch and dozens of empty glass beer bottles had been dumped on the grass.
Mr Patel rang Porirua City Council but was told that as it was his land, it was his responsibility to clear it.
‘‘I have no idea where it all came from; it looks like someone saved up the bottles for a year and then dumped them there. It is very annoying, why don’t people have more respect?’’
He said he would leave the rubbish for a few more days to show how lazy and thoughtless some people can be.
