Fishing grubs trash South Coast breakwall

THERE have been calls for more rubbish bins to be installed at a popular fishing location on the NSW South Coast, following ongoing dumping of rubbish over the Easter break. 

The Batemans Bay Post reports Mandi Powell and her family regularly fish from the Moruya North Head breakwall and watched in dismay as rubbish piled up over the Easter holiday.

The family began collecting the rubbish on Saturday and by Monday had filled five large garbage bags. On Easter Sunday, the family collected 30, half-filled, plastic bags of bait.

“It’s not normally like this,” Mrs Powell said.

“It’s bad and it’s all from the weekend.”

The attitude of litterers also upset the family.

“We have seen people leaving rubbish and asked them to pick it up,” Mrs Powell said.

“They say ‘no’. There is a small bin here, but they don’t use it. It is simple to put it in a bag and take it away. People just don’t care.”

The family collected beer bottles, alcohol cans and plastic bags.
