    Please provide rubbish bins at Bradman oval, on the opposite side from the clubhouse. After every cricket match or event or just daily there are always used nappies, bottles and Mcdonalds dumped on the ground.Perhaps a ranger could patrol the whole place towards the end of the day when people are still parked in their cars, and throwing stuff out the windows. If the ranger is scared or being assaulted then perhaps he or she could just take photos from a parked vehicle and send a fine later?

    Hi there,

    We will pass your comment onto the project team. 

    Litter is indeed a concern and if you note down the details of a vehicle from which litter is thrown, this can be reported to the EPA using an online portal or a mobile app. More details can be found at http://www.epa.nsw.gov.au/litter/from-vehicle.htm

    Education is the only way we can solve some of the problems i.e., dumping illegal. Educating the children when they are at school age. Council do workshops with the children as part of their curriculum, this might keep them away from their phones and IPads. It is their parents that are educating them for the next generation of illegal dumping.
