Illegal dumping comes with a fine. Purposely doing it to cause harm to a native animal (bush turkey) is also illegal. The first photo was taken at 9am on the 13th of October on path between Sydney Road & Tower st in Manly. Sophie reported it to the council who have said they will sort it this week. By 5pm there was more junk on the pile .
How people can get away with doing this in pure daylight we don’t know but we hope they get caught and charged a big fine. It is not only a nasty act but it is also damaging the local environment and making the area an eye sore. Bush turkeys are protected under the Biodiversity Conservation Act 2016. Please report all illegal dumpings to the council immediately on 1300 434 434.
