    AUSTRALIA FINES MAN $1500.00 FOR DUMPING CARTRIDGES
    A CROYDON litterbug has been fined more than $1500 for dumping printer cartridges.Ringwood Magistrates’ Court heard on February 7 that the man had thrown away cartridges, containing dangerous chemicals, on three separate occasions in September and October last year.

    The accused pleaded guilty to all three littering offences.
    He was placed on a good behaviour bond, ordered to pay $635 in court costs and give $1000 to charity.Councillor Alex Makin said the Maroondah Council was “extremely pleased” with the verdict, especially given the nature of the products dumped.“Any goods that contain hazardous chemicals, like printer cartridges, are extremely hazardous to residents and the environment and need to be disposed of appropriately,” Cr Makin said.Households are entitled to two hard waste collections of up to two cubic metres a financial year
