We call ourselves civilised
In another publication Robert Findley of Point Clare referred to a number of streets on the Central Coast "looking like garbage dumps".
I feel embarrassed when friends visit my part of Woy Woy, as the street verges are unkempt with weeds sprouting from the borders of the road edges and drains blocked with weeds and debris.
Litter is strewn around, including the odd smashed appliance, deserted pushbikes, shopping trolleys, a dumped chair (which has been lying upside down near a local bus stop for almost a year).
Tree branches lie around, ignored, and the creek is choked with rubbish and overgrown weeds.
I to wonder where my rates are going.
On discussing this with a customer service officer at Central Coast Council, I was told that no drive- by pickups were done and that each specific job must be logged with Council.
Oh dear, and we call ourselves civilised.
