Steve Heazlewood, of Warrnambool, alerted the council on Wednesday to the dumping, which he said was “disgraceful.”

Mr Heazlewood said the dumped boxes of clothes and household items were in clear view of passing motorists and spoilt what was a tourist area.

He said it appeared someone had cleared out a house and simply dumped the boxed items by the roadside.
