Alison Drover, Broken Head.

Do you know who owned this abandoned couch? This was dumped last week at Broken Head.

It is costing ratepayers to clean up the shire.

Broken Head residents had a meeting with council and police last week regarding illegal camping, speeding, graffiti of Nature Reserve etc.

Dumping of rubbish is also a major problem throughout the shire.

I am going to propose to council that there is a reward paid to information about the owner of dumped property along with a strategy for dumping of rubbish.

There are mattresses all over the shire; the place looks like a tip. No one, locals or tourists, are treating it the way they should.
