Picking up litter is not my job – it’s a waste of my time.
I’m Mark. I’m responsible for weeding and regenerating 30 endangered bushland reserves and constructed wetlands. A lot of my time is spent picking up litter and dumped waste from our reserves, it’s very unproductive.
If people stopped littering, I could spend more time doing my job, which is caring for the native plants and animals of Blacktown.
I’m committed to a #cleancity. Are you?
