Disgusted

#1
I was parked in a well known riverside beauty spot car park this morning. Only one other motorhome there and they proceeded to remove their toilet cassette and take it round to the hidden side of their van.
I could see underneath their motorhome and watched the owner empty the contents of the cassette into a plastic carrier bag and then carry the bag to a waste bin. This was a litter bin which would have to be physically emptied by a council worker.

I was shocked and disgusted at this behaviour and this to me is another example of why motorhomers have a bad reputation and are being banned from lovely spots.

No doubt when a ban is issued they will be shouting the loudest.

And what did you do about it besides posting on here ?

I would have pulled the guy up, told him what I witnessed, then give him the opportunity to right his wrong, failure to comply, number noted and a wee phone call to polis.

What this idiot did, is a health risk.

If you were shocked and disgusted did you do something about it, at least speak to the man. Posting on here will have zero effect but a short conversation might have educated him perhaps.

I’d like to think I’d take the time out to have a quiet word, but, you simply don’t know how that quiet word could be received by some people these days.

I'd like to think that I would have taken a photo of the van, including number plate and ask the police who I should report it to because far as I'm concerned it is a health hazard apart from being a totally unacceptable action.

Regarding pointing out the errors of their ways.
I have done this a few times, when owners have had their waste taps open.
It usually ends badly!

Here we have the same problems but they don,t put it in the bin they just dump it in the hedge and drive of thats why many locals want motorhomes band from the beach carparks

No dont confront the offender as if you did that here a hospital viz would norm be what would happen to you,dont know about mainland but with thick heads these days im sure same,walk away and report.

Disgusting as this incident was, despite the fact that I am very much someone who would go and confront someone performing such an act, I have my dearly beloved telling me not to get involved as we have all been witness to how some people have reacted.
Sadly this modern world of ours doesn't have the acceptable standards it had not all that many years ago!!

Instead I would do as others have suggested and take several photographs and report them to the authorities.

Think my post last night got a tad muddled? What I meant to say was, while reading Alans first post, it is easy for any of us to say we would do this and that. We weren't there to have a first hand glimpse the the knuckle dragger committing this obscene event, he was maybe not the type to get involved with.

So all threads on here and Wild posts about using plastic bags in the M/H cassette.
Just makes one think!
YUK!!!

"That's disgusting" are our immediate thoughts and "report him"... But who to? I bet Plod would not be interested and would suggest you take it up with.... ?
So how do we go about effectively reporting this kind of thing? What offence has been committed? Who deals with those offences? How do we communicate the offence?
I have a Netscape dash-cam which when you download footage to a PC or laptop asks if you want to send the clip to the Police. I have not done this yet as again I suspect they will not do anything... So like many I just complain but don't do anything about it :(
It would be good if some legal eagle on here could advise what to do with evidence of an offence of this type. Maybe I would then report it.

K ;)
Ps it reminds me of dog walkers who pick up their dogs poo in public and then sling the bag into the bushes when no one is around.

Disgusting as that is, even worse are those mindless idiots who pick up dog business and then chuck the bags into fields where horses or farm stock go and eat it which frequently results in major surgery having to be undertaken!

I`ve also seen many posts about members shitting in a bag / bin liner placed in the cassette or a bucket and then binning it.

What`s the difference between them doing it and the person observed in post #1 :unsure:
