On Rubbish: Perhaps a result of the upcoming ‘Clean up Aust day’, there have been reports in the media saying that Australians are actually very naughty about dumping rubbish, when in consideration of how relatively comprehensive our current public waste disposal facilities are. In short, there is really no reason for it. Even living in a flat in central metro or city areas there are facilities & services that can be called on.
You can make the services as easy as you want, but for a huge number of aussies it'll always be easier to just chuck it on the nature strip or dump it at the end of the street.
Or in the creek which I saw a guy do the other day. Too bad I haven't got that helmet cam yet...
I put out an old TV on the nature strip on Saturday with a note that it worked (taped remote to top of it). Was gone in two hours. Although I have seen a lot of dumped old ones lately.
