WAIKIKI resident Sky Sweeney is fed up with rubbish in her neighbourhood.

Ms Sweeney said there was “always” rubbish in her front yard and at a nearby park.

“For anyone that lets their children go to the park on the corner of Mornington Boulevard and Gnangara Drive, please make sure they put (their) rubbish in the bin,” she said.

This week, Ms Sweeney picked up glass in the sand, cigarette butts, a dinner bowl and other items of litter.

She appealed for residents to take more pride in their community.

Ms Sweeney said the City of Rockingham should also put a bin closer to the playground.

City Mayor Barry Sammels said council would investigate the possibility of moving one of the bins from the Mornington Boulevard side of the park closer to the playground.

“In the meantime, we will assign the LitterBusters team to clean up the area in question,” he said.

“The City welcomes reports of litter from members of our community as their up-to-date information enables a rapid response to areas of concern.

“Litter reports can be made directly to the LitterBusters on 1800 4 Litter (1800 4 548837).”
