JILL Handley has had a bagful.
The Nanango woman is fed up with the apparent lack of respect for her town.
Mrs Handley moved to Nanango 15 years ago and said there had been an increase in litter throughout the town.
On her frequent walks she encounters rubbish in the gutters and in the streets.
"I don't understand why people feel it is acceptable to throw rubbish from their cars or leave garbage on the ground," she said.
"I have come across dirty nappies, people who have obviously thrown out meat from their car and lots of alcohol stubbies and bottles.
"It is absolutely disgusting the things people throw out of their cars."
South Burnett Regional Council acting mayor Keith Campbell encouraged residents concerned with litter to contact the council. He urged residents to use the public waste facilities available throughout the town.
"The prime contributors to litter in the streets are careless people who don't take advantage of the litter bins around," Cr Campbell said.
"I ask those people to have a little pride and respect in their town by using the facilities rather than tossing their rubbish out."
Mrs Handley said she believed it all came down to people's attitude to the town.
"I know the council try to keep up with the problem, but ultimately it comes down to the individual to know between right and wrong.
"People need to have a little more respect for this town and the environment."
She said she felt the town was in need of major change.
"When I first moved here the town was very clean and the atmosphere was nice and welcoming," she said. "Now I feel sorry when I see the town so run down and so much litter in the streets."
