Murray Shire Ranger David Dundee took this picture of rubbish dumped in Moama. He is concerned about the amount of rubbish being dumped around the town.
Murray Shire ranger David Dundee is disgusted with the amount of rubbish being dumped around the streets of Moama.
The problem of dumping rubbish on the back roads of Moama is a long-running one, he said.
Mr Dundee, a Murray Shire ranger of four years, said people left green waste, old furniture and rubbish.
He said the shire was so concerned about rubbish dumping it had purchased two new security cameras to crack down on the offenders.
He said the cameras would be placed in rubbish ‘hotspots’ to catch people in the act.
The shire and NSW police also carried out a joint operation on the weekend, targeting unsecured vehicle loads.
Mr Dundee said unsecured loads were not only a road safety issue but could leave rubbish strewn along the sides of the road.
He said a number of vehicles with unsecured loads were inspected and warnings issued.
NSW police also carried out breath tests, licence and registration checks on a number of vehicles and issued fines and warnings.
