There is no tolerance for illegal dumping

Rubbish dumped in bush

Members of the public are watching and reporting illegal dumping in the Byron Shire and the message from Council’s Resource Recovery Education and Compliance Officer, Zoe White, is to keep it up.

It comes after three major illegal dumping incidents in the last month, including two asbestos dumps.

“We recently received reports of a pile of asbestos fibro sheeting that had been dumped in and around kerbside bins in the Byron Arts and Industry Estate,” Ms White said.

“We got in and cleaned it up immediately because of the potential threat to public health and safety,” she said.

Asbestos was also dumped at The Byron Resource Recovery Centre, along with four fridges and a washing machine on Tyagarah Road.
