    so why dont they just spray whole area with diesel and drop a match on it??? in six months time or after the next flood you wont know the difference....anything burnable will be gone,anything metal will rust away quicksmart....and dont give me the toxic bit...what they remove just goes into another tip further from the river. it seems like a giant waste of time and money to me.

    The landfills of old and the landfills of today are as different as a blunderbuss and a modern semi automatic firearm. Today’s landfills are lined, the leachate is treated through a reverse osmosis plant with the particulate redeposited into the landfill and the resultant water is cleaner than most river water. The methane gas created by the decomposing refuse is extracted and used to fuel generators that put electricity into the national grid.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    If you burn it where it is you are punishing the environment for our own doing.

    Aye, reminds of another famous line...... “love the smell of napalm in the morning, smells like victory”.

    Thumbs up to all those tying to deal with clean up.

    Hah. The use of napalm in that context came to naught and caused no good either.

    First off, thats about 1000 square kilometres. Secondly, uncontrolled incinerating plastic is not good for a lot of reasons. Thirdly.... Hang on... I think... Hang on, do I smell a troll?

    Unless you see this mess for yourselves you won't appreciate the damage. Pics and news coverage doesn't show the half of it.

    They don't show the rubbish that has washed out to sea and travelled both north and south along our beaches.

    People I have been with and myself have picked up some rubbish but there is way too much for us to make a difference.
    It is pretty sad really.

    lol yeah well..... I guess someone put it there...so someone has to pick it up AGAIN....and put it somewhere else AGAIN.
    Taumarunui used to tip the rubbish into the gullies down behind the high school and cemetry....thats half a km away from a mojor river and the gullies are old washouts from years gone by.....do wonder if future generations will end up doing the same thing there as is happening on west coast.
    and NO I dont biff stuff out car window.
    the thousand square kilometres bit doesnt sound right...its a river bed so maybe what 500mtres wide??? even at 1km wide it would have to be 1000kms long...which it physically CANT BE.
