CCTV catches nine offenders

This trailer was located by a resident on Fisher Road.

A trailer full of rubbish was dumped on the side of Fisher Road in Serpentine, providing opportunity to remind locals of the appropriate way to dispose of their bulk waste.

The trailer was reported to the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale who have scheduled a removal with the Shire’s Operations Team.

Within the shire, opportunities to correctly dispose of waste are available including the Waste Transfer Station at Watkins Road Reserve in Mundijong.

The Watkins Road Waste Transfer Station and Recycling Centre is open Thursday through Saturday from 7.30am to 6.30pm and Sundays from 9am to 5pm.

Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale President Michelle Rich said they encourage the community to report illegal dumping to the shire.

“People should note the details of the person involved and any vehicle registration numbers and report it,” she said.

“Through the help of our community we can continue to grow a cleaner environment, together.

“Our Rangers Team work closely with Department of Water and Environmental Regulation and Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions throughout the Shire to combat illegal dumping on public land.

“Since 2019, the shire has been utilising portable hidden CCTV cameras to identify illegal dumping of rubbish activities on public land.

“To date, these cameras have led to nine offenders being caught and infringed, with those offenders required to return and remove their dumped rubbish from our environment.”

Anyone who may know the owner of the trailer or has any further information should report it online through the Shire website or by calling 9526 1111.
