Public bins destroyed in Umina
Central Coast Council is urging the community to be vigilant when it comes to vandalism following the destruction of several public litter bins at Umina.
Council director Mr Boris Bolgoff said the replacement of litter bins comes at a direct cost to ratepayers.
"We try to repair any damage on site.
"However, due to excessive, damage bins usually have to be removed in the interest of public safety," Mr Bolgoff said.
"In the last two years, five single garbage enclosures at Umina required removal due to the damage.
"We salvage what we can, though when bins are damaged beyond repair the cost of replacement really starts to add up."
