Goondiwindi Regional Council has recently issued infringement notices for the illegal dumping of pig carcasses based upon photographic evidence collected using some of Councils remote cameras.

Waste Management portfolio holder, Councillor Rob MacKenzie said that "illegal dumping of carcasses, tyres and some general waste has become a serious problem for this and many other Councils and we are determined to do something about it."

He also said "we don't like issuing dines or taking people through Court processes but we have been instructed be Council to take a zero tolerance approach to illegal dumping."

"To avoid prosecution, the message is simple and familiar - DO THE RIGHT THING," Councillor Mackenzie said.
