20170829 083630Following similar incidents earlier in the year, there’s been another instance of food waste being dumped at the Cobden Bridge end of Riverside Park.


We took these pictures on Tuesday (Aug 29) at around 8.30am after a Twitter tipoff. It’s thought that the food wasn’t there on the preceding bank holiday Monday.

Both questioned why they would dump food when they said they paid for commercial waste services.
