THE Environment Protection Authority Victoria is urging Echuca-Moama to pick a reputable company when hiring a skip bin.

The EPA’s illegal waste disposal strike force’s Chris Webb said anyone hiring a skip bin should be careful.

“There are fly-by-night skip bin operators who will give you a very cheap price, then abandon your renovation waste in the bush, on private land or in a rented warehouse,” he said.

“The landholder, your local council, or even you, might be the one left with the clean-up cost, and unlike the skip bin, it won’t be cheap.”

Anyone with information about illegal dumping is encouraged to report it to EPA by calling 1300 372 842 or visiting www.epa.vic.gov.au
