Rubbish revealed! By Bill McElhinney Shame on you, illegal rubbish dumpers! Blenheim man Des Watson pulled into the lay-by just past Tuamarina, on the road to Picton this week, hopped over the fence, and found piles of rubbish that had been tossed there. Within a few hours Des had accumulated a trailer load of discarded items, including: • A vacuum cleaner

• An electric lawnmower • Car tyres • Car battery • A container full of what appeared to be poison. There were also lots of bottles, plastic wrappers, food waste and a pile of scallop shells. All this had been dumped on an area right on the edge of the Para Swamp, the largest natural wetland in the region. Continued on page 2.

It didn’t take Des Watson long to collect this pile, including a vacuum cleaner and an electric lawnmower, dumped off the lay-by just a few kilometres from Tuamarina on the road to Picton.
