I suspect Rod Webster (South Gippsland Sentinel-Times, September 27) is one of those long winded academician types (with an E in common sense) who blows into town and tries to upset the status quo of the place.
I have one plan for you Rod (no consultancy fee required).
Rally your 300 card carrying tree huggers and march them out to the Inverloch tip and let them clean up the massive amount of pollutants that you seem to imagine bubble away out there and place them in the bins provided at the station.
Then you can toddle off home, crack a nice bottle of Chardonnay and put your feet up, comforted by the thought that you have saved the world, yet again.
PS: leave our transfer station alone.
