GYMPIE Regional Council is investigating a large quantity of rubbish dumped beside Lagoon Pocket Rd.

The rubbish was left some time between Monday night and Tuesday morning and has outraged Lagoon Pocket residents who have taken to social media site, Facebook, to air their disapproval.

While the individual/s responsible for the dumping may have thought they found an economical way to avoid paying for a trip to the dump, they did forget to destroy personal documents containing identifying details.

A man who came across the rubbish noticed the documents and has since passed those details on to Gympie Police.

Do you know of any other illegal dumping hot spots in the Gympie region? What do you think about people leaving rubbish on the side of the road?
