WILL REFUND FOR BOTTLES STOP LITTER?

Posted in fremantle by freoview on April 13, 2012

The large amounts of empty, and often broken, bottles left in the Round House area by backpackers, makes me wonder if paying for empty bottles would reduce the litter left for others to clean up.

Night after night visitors to our city use Arthur Head as their playground and rubbish bin and leave broken bottles everywhere but in the rubbish bins. The grassed area is often used during the day by Notre Dame students and tourists, often with children who like to run around bare feet. The stupid inconsiderate vandalism by the drunks endangers the health of those kids and students.

While last summer police sent out regular evening patrols, this year it seems to be too much to get out of the car and walk around the Round House. Unfortunately the City of Fremantle security officers don’t do night shifts

Time maybe to reimburse people who return empty bottles to the bottle shops, hopefully that way encouraging people to take the empties with them.
