Bush trekkers pick up rubbish near Two Rocks

The 4×4 Fight Back group’s founder Rob Kempton said Aaron Mortimer called on fellow 4WD enthusiasts to join a clean-up from Two Rocks to Wilbinga in April.

Mr Kempton said about 20 people helped out and they did not have to go far to fill the convoy of trailers and utes.

‘Beer bottles were in their plenty, the main problem posed by offroad users, but the bigger problem was dumping of rubbish generally,’ he said.

Mr Kempton, who started an online campaign in 2012 to get designated tracks and beach access for offroad vehicles in the north coast area, said people who enjoyed the outdoor activity wanted to show they would care for the dunes.

‘We have a great respect for our coastal environment and that it is a privilege to be able to visit these beautiful locations,’ he said.

‘As the name 4×4 Fight Back implies, we are fighting back and taking action with clean -ups being planned on a regular basis.’

The Kinross resident said he planned to meet with Wanneroo mayor Tracey Roberts this month to present the group’s proposals and they planned to hold their next clean-up in the Jindalee coastal area.

Mr Kempton set up a Facebook group and held a rally last year in response to an awareness campaign by developers that most of the undeveloped north coast area was private land and offroad access was trespassing.

Offroad activity is permitted in designated areas on the corner of Pinjar Road and Wattle Avenue, Centre Ways off Gnangara Road, Lancelin and Ledge Point.
