  1. Murwillumbah, you have a drinking problem. We filled ten 35-litre rubbish bags on Sunday from Jim Devine field, Queens Park and Mt St Patricks’ school oval. 90% of it was alcohol containers. Stubbies, bottles of spirits, pre-mix cans, UDLs, bags of goon and plastic bottles with god-knows-what in them. Other items that rate a mention were dirty nappies and prophylactics.
