MANDURAH resident Barbara Briscoe is disgusted at the rubbish on spare blocks on Anstruther Road.

Ms Briscoe said rubbish had been piling up since August. She said the block across from the deli had recently been mowed, with rubbish strewn everywhere.

City of Mandurah chief executive Mark Newman urged residents to report any illegal dumping as soon as possible to ensure offenders that dump items, such as household material, building and business rubbish, were prosecuted.

“Illegal dumping is a concern, particularly in and around nature reserves, building sites, vacant land and in isolated areas,” he said.

“This type of littering has a significant impact, not only the clean-up cost but also on our precious environment.

“In order to prosecute offenders, the City requires evidence and the community’s support in this essential.

“Where dumping occurs on private land and no evidence of the offender is obtained, the City will contact landowners making them aware of the illegally dumped rubbish and request their co-operation in having the waste removed.”

Residents can report illegal dumping or littering to 9550 3777.
