Letter: Highway rubbish at Nabiac

Nabiac residents are concerned this rubbish could end up in Wallis Lake.
Nabiac residents are concerned this rubbish could end up in Wallis Lake.

With current action on removal of plastic bags from supermarkets due to their impact on the environment, it is with alarm and disbelief that nothing has been or is being done by council or road authorities to clean up the mess beside the Pacific Highway at Nabiac, especially just north of the service station. 

Rubbish has been accumulating here for some time as it is a popular stopping spot.

Food wrappers, drink containers even empty oil bottles as well as rubbish dumped by those too lazy to go to the tip mean that nearby waterways will soon be polluted.

This filth will find its way into the creek that feeds the Wallamba River which in turn empties into Wallis Lake.

Council has gone to great lengths to install filters to protect the lake closer to Forster Tuncurry but Nabiac has become more and more neglected. 

It's time the mayor and his councillors paid a visit to see this for themselves. Melinda Pavey would do well to see what's beside our main highways.

So much for our beautiful unspoiled land.
