I have no idea which "club
" you are talking about Burra
, but it is true that many Councils do not consider tourists when signing their tips for locals only (or for those with a tip pass which only go to ratepayers). Is the option clear to them? Are they staying at this "club
What really annoys me is the number of "disposable" baby nappies dumped at roadsides and in the bush near the road. Who is doing that? The vast majority of Nomads are not travelling with babies. A lot of the rubbish is take away food packaging too - not the normal fare of the Nomad generation.
I have seen a group of European backpackers pile their bags of rubbish - lots of bulky takeaway food packets, cool
drink bottles etc, beside an already overflowing bin in a free camp (they had been staying there some time when we arrived). Local Council had them evicted because of this during our stay, and after that the bin was not even filled after a few days with a lot of travelling campers coming through. They may not have been typical of the young
tourists from overseas.
Many of us will look for a bin at a rest area, and if it is full, will move on without dumping. We make very little rubbish when caravanning
- even less than when at home. After all, what do we have to throw out? - no mail, junk mail, not much packaging, only the odd baked beans can, plastic wrap, used tissues and flattened UHF milk cartons - about one "grocery bag" a week - now no-one should begrudge that in a Council bin.
