Media Response - Glen Waverley Human Faeces

Published on 26 April 2022

Query from Leader Community News:

I'm just getting in touch after a Glen Waverley resident has contacted me about human faeces being left outside of her property on Blackburn Rd. 

I would like to get a comment from council condemning this type of behaviour. Do council offer collection if this occurs again? 


Council is disappointed and disgusted at the use of a Monash street as a toilet and thoroughly condemns this act.

It is unfair to expect residents of the street or council staff to have to clean up this mess.

However, if required, we can provide a clean-up crew.

We would suggest that people ensure they plan their outings to ensure they can visit a bathroom if they need to relieve themselves.

Council encourages anyone observing this type of behaviour to report the matter to Victoria Police as they are the appropriate authority to investigate.
