People accessing one of Byron Shire’s beautiful beaches at Belongil were greeted last week with a revolting sight: a fetid overflowing bin full of stinking dog-turd bags, filthy food waste and valuable recyclables.
Well done Byron Shire, we’ve certainly outdone ourselves this time. If waste like this is unable to be properly removed in a timely manner before overflowing, then what hope do we ever have of keeping our beaches clean and wildlife safe?
The next storm, and we will see some of this garbage inevitably washed into the sea. Come on Council and waste collectors. Get your act together! This is pathetic.
