I don't know, just seems to be a sad (but valid) generalisation of people simply not caring what they leave behind or that it is someone's property or "playground" they are disrespecting. Particularly over Christmas at Palm Beach we get rubbish left all over the beach and the beachside parks and other nearby grassy areas. People come to places like we play in largely for the beauty of the environment then trash it in the ways we have described in these posts; what do they expect it to be like next time they turn up and why should the locals and the council have to clean up after them? Admittedly often at the Northern Beaches Secret Spot it is a "better class of rubbish" (French champagne bottles, etc) than some other beaches might suffer from, but sadly it is all very often left quite close to the bins - which to give the council due credit are plentiful, large, visible, and emptied regularly even over the holiday periods. It won't surprise regulars in this thread at all, but that morning we turned up for our early last week and saw the bogged 4WD truck on the beach that I posted the photo of there was also a fair amount of "beachside party rubbish" dumped on the grass at the top of the beach not far from the stuck vehicle _and_ within 5m of a set of bins. We did a quick cleanup of it, took the photo I posted of the stuck vehicle, decided the two things were linked and then left the vehicle owners to sort out their self-inflicted predicament. Karma.
