Bot­tle drop­pers

South Waikato News - - OPINION -

Why, why, why is it that peo­ple can’t take their rub­bish home?

I drive from Pu­taruru to Ara­puni just about ev­ery day and quite of­ten see rub­bish by the road side and have of­ten stopped and picked it up when it is in bags or boxes. Up un­til last week my record for bot­tles was three dozen beer bot­tles in their boxes.

Well I now have a new record I saw some lay­ing in the grass the other day and stopped to col­lect them.

As I counted them into my lit­tle red van I was sur­prised to find I had a to­tal of 141 and not one bro­ken one.

I took them home and put them out for the re­cy­cle col­lec­tor.

Why couldn’t the dumper have done that?

It is just be­yond me to un­der­stand how peo­ple can do this to our coun­try­side. Tony Stephens
