hello all,
while on our easter trip ,i noticed bags of rubbish left on the banks and some floating on the river ,so if your not a member or thinking about 1st time hiring a boat, do please use the rubbish points at boatyards ,public moorings ,or parish statihes .please do not leave them on the banks !it's bad for the wildlife ,and unsightly .The broads is a beautiful place and there for all of us to enjoy ,and thats the way it should be kept!
thank you

steve and vicky

I really can not understand people who do this sort of thing!Where exactly do they think the rubbish is gonna go to? Disappear into thin air perhaps? I guess they don't really care as they cruise off into the sunset...

Last year we tried desperately to help a duck that had the plastic holder thing from the top of a 4 pack stuck round its neck and mouth. It was stuck fast and he coouldn't eat.Perhaps if these stupid people were to see something like this, they might think again...?

Anyway, I am bold enough to say something to anyone I saw dumping rubbish, though I don't know if they would take any notice. What does everyone else think? And what else could be done to stop or punish this foul behaviour?

Karen

cheers!

I'd be straight on the phone to the Broads Authority, they lay down the law no problem as you know.

Boat name & date is all the info they need to fine the hire company and the hirer.

I wouldn't get into an argument with 6/7/8 blokes fueled up on beer its just not worth the risk....A simle call to the BA is all thats needed.

Phew! rant over! Smile

Couldn't agree more, Taz. The BA are quick to react to this sort of environmental disrespect...I've seen 'em in action...they are quite a force to be reckoned with!  Smile

Yep - you are right about being careful what I say and to whom! I just get so incensed by these selfish people!

We are faily new to Boating, but now I know the Broads Authority do take swift action (should the police take a lesson from them? - ooh, thats another topic alltogether...), I'll gladly pass on the details, should we spot any of these idiots.

Karen

cheers!

Just a note of caution here.
on our xmas trip we saw collection points  for boaters rubbish that WNCC had not collected  and at some sites the wind had blown some contents about and the ducks were having a fine time ripping open bags to get at the food inside as were the sea gulls.
i have never seen on our boating trips anyone discarding refuse sacks overboard but i have seen our esteemed council saving penniies by not collecting them .

With Broadland District Council withdrawing their collection points this is going to be an increasing problem. Yes I have a trade collection from the yard on a weekly basis it costs me £20 per week and there is no relief because it's half full of hirers rubbish who have stopped off just to fill the water tanks.

I know you knew what you were doing, dear, but you still hit the other boat! Bill...

I have to say the attitude of the councils towards boaters really surprises me. Closing toilets, rubbish collection etc.

The average boater, hire or private, will spend plenty of money in the area whilst visiting. If you go to other tourist areas such as Cornwall you see signs and bins everywhere reminding you about dropping or dumping litter.
