Spotted in one area were twelve single-sized mattresses sprawled out, some on top of each another.

How long the mattresses have been there, where they came from and who dumped them is not known.

According to the Bundaberg Regional Council's waste fee's fact sheet a mattress up to a single size costs $5 each and larger than a single size is $10 to dump at the Bundaberg and Qunaba facilities.

There were also several tyres on the ground and a few more spotted in the river in another spot along that area.
