Rubbish dumped in Oropi stream
An inflatable swimming pool, false eyelashes and a heap of kids toys were just some of the items that staff removed from Tautau stream on Oropi Road.
Bay of Plenty Regional Council staff were called to the stream on Wednesday afternoon.
"All up, the haul weighed about 130kg," says a pos on the Bay of Plenty Regional Council Facebook page.
"It's especially disappointing as this stream is a drinking water source for Tauranga.
