Dumping in the Maitland CID remains a big challenge. Two favourite dumping sites that the Maitland CID team has to clear regularly are the corner of Coronation and Melon streets, as well as no. 5 Glamis Close. Various household items are also regularly dumped in Essex and Suffolk streets, although it seems to become less frequent.
Gene Lorentz, CEO of Geocentric urban management, urges businesses not to dump their waste or place their cardboard boxes outside for the vagrants to collect. This adds to the bigger social problems in the area.
