Time to get tough
The Adelaide Hills Council is looking at installing security cameras at well-known “hot spots” for illegal rubbish dumping in the foothills.
With the clean-up bill for dumping now reaching more than $100,000 a year, Mayor Bill Spragg said the regulatory services department was investigating and pricing different equipment.
It is expected that a report will come to the council later this year.
“We’re talking about it because of illegal dumping along roadsides,” Mr Spragg said.
He said the foothills, including the areas around his home district of Montacute, were prime targets for dumpers who usually drove up from Adelaide.
