Why I think there should be no rubbish at Lake Ranfurly!!!!

DSC07047I think rubbish should not be littered anywhere around Sunraysia area, because it is bad for all our wildlife and it is also dangerous to people who go out to a picnic. If they find syringes and if they have a child with them it could kill them.

These are true stories that I have heard…
1. Tom and his family went out to Lake Ranfurly for the day and found all sorts of things like rubbish, syringes, dead animals and other things. So then Tom’s Dad went home to get a trailer and they filled it up to the very top and then took it to the landfill for free.
2. A mum takes her child on a walk around Lake Ranfurly and she did not notice any of the syringes around and let go of her son’s hand and sat down on a seat and then tied a harness around her son  so he would not go far but he found a syringe and poked himself with it and passed out.
3. A family’s dog died and they were moving in two weeks so they were bad and put it down then put it in a cardboard box and took it to Lake Ranfurly. Then all the feral dogs and cats got it and tore it to bits so it wasn’t nice when a group of kids went on a class trip and found it and they were told someone would come and get it.
So that’s why I think there should be no rubbish around Lake Ranfurly because then people have to go and clean up after others and find stuff that you have dumped and driven off.


Rubbish at West

Here at Mildura West we are trying our hardest to not get our Recycling bins contaminated. We probably are thinking the kids putting rubbish in the bins  are the younger students but it is also the older kids that should know better! Miss Hudswell, Miss  Vorwerk and I are trying really hard to have no rubbish in the bins so we don’t have to pay $200 dollars per BIN.

Here is a short list of what we find in the bins,

  1.  chip packets
  2. food
  3. full fruit box
  4. hot dogs
  5. drinks
  6. and lots more gross stuff

Here are some pictures to show you what we do and what the kids do to prevent the bins from being contaminated.

IMG_3382This is a good bin. We have put a piece of cardboard in the top and this helps us to check the contamination. If there is nothing contaminating the bin then we put the cardboard on the top again.





This is a bad bin contaminated with rubbish!

IMG_3385That is another bad recycling bin.


If you don’t know what bin it goes in put it in the rubbish bin!.

IMG_3387The red stands for 200 dollars that’s how much it costs per bin so if they were all with rubbish in them we would be up to about $1000!

IMG_1616 I think if the public doesn’t know what to do they should learn or put it in their rubbish bin not go and dump it on someone’s property.

IMG_3431We have recycling skips here at school and if they get rubbish in them it can cost 500 dollars.
