A North Haven resident was horrified when he came across a pile of rubbish which had been dumped in the water at Henry Kendall Reserve.
Russell Taylor came across the shocking find on Saturday, October 27.
He has lived at North Haven for six years and often visits Henry Kendall Reserve to fish.
Russell said the dumping of rubbish has a devastating impact on the pristine environment of the Camden Haven.
“We are known for having really healthy waterways, which are occupied by a variety of marine life including grey nurse sharks,” he said.
Russell contacted the Courier because he wanted to raise awareness of the environmental issue.
“It’s really sad to see,” he said.
Earlier this year a Laurieton resident came across a makeshift shelter and dumped rubbish at the Laurieton foreshore.
Litter including used condoms, wrappers, drug paraphernalia and bottles were found at the location.
Council encourages residents who discover shelters or litter to report it by calling council on 6581 8111.
