Too many people think it is OK to illegally dump their rubbish; their philosophy is literally “out of sight, out of mind”. But illegal dumping of rubbish is a scourge on our society and our environment. When you need rubbish removal in Mortdale, you need to find a better alternative.
Illegal dumping refers to dumping any kind of rubbish in public, non-designated rubbish areas, including but not limited to illegal landfills, bushland, parks, waterways, roadsides, vacant lots, or on any private land without local council and EPA approval. When any rubbish is illegally dumped, its very presence encourages others to do the same in the same place.
Australians are offenders when it comes to illegal dumping, with the most common items dumped illegally in this country being packaging, furniture, and organic waste such as garden refuse. Other common items for illegal dumping include scrap tyres, construction materials, asbestos, and abandoned cars. People dump illegally to avoid dumping fees and also due to pure laziness and apathy for the environment and others.
Illegal dumping of all kinds of rubbish is harmful to the environment as well as to human health and safety. Illegal dumping:
- Introduces contaminants to the environment
- Harms plants and animals
- Increases flood risk
- Poisons the eater supply
- Inhibits recycling potential
- Lowers property values
- Creates a breeding ground for insects, rodents, and other vermin
- Poses a health risk to humans
- Blights the landscape
- Costs taxpayers a fortune
It is extremely important that each and every one of us takes responsibility for our own rubbish and disposes of it legally and mindfully.
