///Illegal waste dumped on the edge of the Hawkesbury

See below shocking footage from the ABC’s Four Corners uncovering a hidden illegal dump ground, where an estimated 20,000 tonnes of waste has been dumped right on the edge of the Hawkesbury River in NSW, Australia.

50 trucks a day dumped an estimated 20,000 tonnes of waste, under the supervision of a corrupt waste inspector (former footballer Craig Izzard) from Gosford Council. In this taped call, property owner Sam Abbas claims he thought it was ‘all normal’ but then goes on to say that they were ‘dumping material right up to the river, it’s f*cking illegal’.

 

The council would not comment on the matter saying it is under investigation.

The EPA say they plan to prosecute.
