The beach is not a Dumping Ground! by sarnia2

The beach is not a Dumping Ground! by 

Not all that is found on the beach is flotsam that has been washed up by the raging waves of the sea.
Some of it has been dumped there by people who cannot be bothered to go to their local civic dump and get rid properly!
Still makes my hobby an interesting one, but some stuff really should not be there…….
This refuse bag was filled with empty copper casings!! (which must be recyclable someplace) The copper had been stripped from them, and then someone ‘kindly’ dumped the casings on the beach! I just don’t understand that one at all.
My logical mind just won’t stretch to understanding such an illogical and… illegal act!

    I can never understand why people do this , they have taken the trouble to go to the beach to dump it why didn’t they go to the tip ??

  • Yep! i can’t understand it either Irene. There are so many dangers there for the wee birds and other sealife….not mention the pollution. Thank you for stopping by :))
