Council on the case in illegal dumping crackdown

THE goose may be up with illegal dumping in the Tweed Shire as the council cracks down.

At an illegal dumping site close to the intersection of Kyogle Rd and the Nimbin turnoff council rangers have draped the scene in yellow and black tape which reads, "Illegally dumped waste under investigation".

A council spokeswoman said the investigation was ongoing and would not confirm whether the council had received a tip-off about documents, containing a name and address, being among the rubbish.

"A council work crew will collect and dispose of the dumped waste at the Stotts Creek Resource Recovery Centre," a council spokesperson said.

"Obviously at a considerable cost to ratepayers."

Fines can range from $60 to $750 if the offenders can be identified.

A $110 on the spot fine also applies. If caught, illegal dumpers can be made to clean up the dumped material as well as face fines.

Council welcomes tip-offs from members of the public, particularly if they can identify offenders - photographs of offenders in the act or licence plates are particularly useful. Please call (02) 6670 2400.
