Paddock to Plate

Photographer's Name: 
Simone De Peak

A dumped fridge early one foggy morning, still containing food, lies discarded beside farmland on a quiet back road of Maitland, New South Wales, Australia. 

Illegal kerbside dumping, from refrigerators to mattresses, is becoming more frequent in the area. The locals blame the problem on the perceived high cost of taking rubbish to the city's tip and the lack of kerbside collection in Maitland.
