Drugs, clothes dumped by roadside
SYRINGES, medication, clothing and unused SIM cards were among the items dumped on the side of a Chatsworth road early this week.
Llewellyn and Nancy Evans, who live no more than 150m from the site of the dumping, are upset over not only the casual disregard for the environment, but the potential dangers it poses to their family.
"We mind our little grandchildren two days a week,” Mr Evans said.
"It's not good.
"It needs to be shifted too because I tried to ride my horse down the road this morning and he wouldn't go past it.”
Dominatrix gear and toiletries were also found amongst the refuse, along with a package of prescription medication with a name on the label, as well as a note inside a plastic bag with names and addresses for several people from New South Wales.
He said there have never been this type of dumping in the area before.
While Mrs Evans had notified both council and police shortly after finding the rubbish, it had yet to be removed.
"I think the council might have been here this morning,” Mr Evans said.
"And the police know about it, they've got a job card written on it, but they're extremely busy.”
The Evans are especially concerned that, the longer it remains on the side of the road, the more chance it could be scattered by the weather.
They believe they heard the car responsible for causing the litter, but Mr Evans said they had no reason to think twice about it at the time.
"I heard a vehicle, but I didn't take much notice because at the end of the road lots of vehicles come, turn around and go away again,” he said.
