sive arboric giants, which are left to blow over the area and into drains.


Council is very quick to offer people free trees to keep the suburb green, but are very slow to react when these trees be- come a problem.


Surely council can roster people on a regular basis to keep our streets clean.


The council are now making noises about issuing residents with another bin for vegetation, which will make a total of four bins for every home.


These bins are a great initiative Street-Cleaning A Dirty Word by Duncan Horscroft I


t’s time for the local Bronte residents - and for that matter every resident in the Waverley Municipality - to start standing up and demanding some action be done about the atrocious state of residential streets.


Over the years The Bronte Ex- press has spoken to three mayors regarding the garbage strewn around the streets and nature strips, but the protests seem to have fallen on deaf ears. And it’s not just the garbage that is a problem, the vegeta- tion from the trees on the council footpaths is also a cause for concern.


The vegetation and garbage inevitably ends up in the storm water system and into our pristine ocean after heavy falls of rain. Chesterfield Parade is one of the most sought after pieces of real estate within the Bronte demographic.


But when the massive fig 66 • the Beast


trees, which grace this pic- turesque boulevarde, aren’t falling on houses or sending the water-starved roots on a journey through residents’ drains, the fruit from these trees turns the street into a pile of sludge.


Council is very quick to offer people free trees to keep the suburb green, but are very slow to react when these trees become a problem.


Recently when the berries were ripe and falling to the ground, the street turned into rotting mush and even the best side-step couldn’t save the Julius Marlows.


And it’s not a very good look on the white shag-pile when trudged through the house. Also adding to the angst - and it’s not only Chesterfield Parade that’s the culprit - are the piles of dead leaves left by these mas-


for people to recycle but they don’t serve any purpose when the vegetable matter outside private properties builds up in the street.


To solve this problem you would need a bin the size of a house to cater for the regular fallout.


Surely council can roster people on a regular basis to keep our streets clean. Some of us remember “the good old days” when council workers armed with a broom and shovel would regularly walk the streets and keep our gutters free of mess.


Heck, we even remember when the garbos actually used the brooms and shovels hanging off the backs of their trucks to clean up after them.


Bring back the good old days and get our suburbs back into the pristine condition they were once in.
