Shar­ing Shed used as place to dump waste

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

It’s ex­tremely dis­ap­point­ing to see some peo­ple are us­ing the Shar­ing Shed on An­zac Green as a dump­ing site.

I guess in their view it saves them money, but sadly it may jeop­ar­dise the shed it­self.

The con­cept is sound and ap­pre­ci­ated by many peo­ple — those who do­nate and those who grate­fully re­ceive.

It would be a shame to see it closed down be­cause of thought­less peo­ple leav­ing items like old car seats, empty gas cans and open tins of food.

Four women give their time and ef­fort to main­tain and run it but they can hardly be ex­pected to pay for the dis­posal of other peo­ple’s rub­bish.

There is a list of items that are suit­able at­tached to the shed. If you see any­one get­ting rid of their un­wanted trash take their car regis­tra­tion num­ber and ad­vise the coun­cil.

Don’t feel bad about this as you would be pro­tect­ing the fu­ture of the Shar­ing Shed it­self. VERN WIL­SON Waipa¯ District Coun­cil­lor
