LETTERS: Keeping litter at bay

REGARDING Merv Newman QT 9/02/16; you thank Charlie Pisasale for being humble enough to walk along Toongarra Road before 6.30am to pick up trash left on the side of the road.

In years gone by we had a certain element in our midst that allowed the rubbish bins to live on the public footpath.

From time to time vandals used to tip them over to spill onto the road after several attempts to have something done about it, fell on deaf ears.

After it happening yet again some years ago I made a phone call to my division counsellor and after some stormy words it was cleaned up.

Things have changed and I can assure you the bins don't live on the footpath any more.

SHIRLEY MCDONALD, Raymond's Hill
