“We’ve had friendly discussions with
the Renmark Paringa Council in par-
ticular about the area near the Cooltong
Conservation Park,” he said.
“We’ve offered to provide volunteer
labour to try to deal with it – although I’m
not sure how practical it is because it’s
quite a big project – to try to get something
done about it.
“Really, if we’re going to remove the
rubbish we really want to make sure it
doesn’t keep coming back.”
Berri Barmera Council chief executive
officer David Beaton said while council
received a few complaints from residents,
depending on where the dumping was
located it could be referred to the EPA.
“They’ve got cameras and that sort of
thing that they can set up to catch people,”
“They would certainly prosecute some-
one if they caught them.
“We are aware of a few areas where it’s
Mr Nettlefold said preventing fur-
ther dumping would be difficult unless
changes were made to the way parks were
“There’s two things that could work,”
“One is to restrict access to that particu-
lar area (at Cooltong Conservation Park)
and although I haven’t really surveyed the
area it looks to be one access route which
could be gated and locked.
“(It) may seem drastic but I think that’s
the only way.
“The other thing is to make sure people
are fined for dumping.
“If a few people get big fines for dump-
ing that might change people’s behaviour.
“One of the disappointing things is
that there is a waste transfer station in
Renmark West... people are obviously
driving straight past that and taking the
cheap option of disposing of it illegally.”
Mr Nettlefold said increasing costs of
waste disposal could be contributing to
“I think (cost) is the issue,” he said.
“It is fairly expensive so some people
take the cheap option.
“The onus is also on local government
to find an alternative for people. It could
be factored into their rates maybe.
“In any case it has to be paid for by
somebody. But domestic rubbish is a core
responsibility of local government really.
“It’s very awkward in country areas, we
seem to have this area where no one seems
to want to police it.”

Illegal dumping in the Riverland’s national parks and Crown Lands is a growing
problem, according to a local national parks group. This recent photo was taken on
