Enough of this rubbish -
Waroona residents have started dumping hard waste in their front yards, however the Shire of Waroona confirmed a contractor would not complete the pick-up until December.

Mum and son face court -
Vivien Jennifer Maclean, 72, and Nathan Paul Pohe, 47, both appeared in Bunbury Magistrates Court on Thursday where they stood accused of cultivating cannabis with intent to sell or supply, as well as possessing the same drug with intent to sell or supply.
It was alleged police uncovered a number of cannabis plants and material when officers executed a Misuse of Drugs and Weapons search warrant at their Brunswick home on July 30.
Bad jab rate rap -
Waroona has been singled out for having one of the worst COVID vaccination rates in the State.
New data, sourced from the Australian Immunisation Register, showed only 23.3 per cent of the town’s population was fully vaccinated, the ninth lowest in all of regional WA.
This is despite Waroona becoming the first regional location to have a pharmacy distributing the jab earlier this year.
