Bill Poetries


Artists: Alison Whittaker, Brentley Frazer, Bill Moran, David Stavanger, Angela Pieta, Matt Hetherington, Pascalle Burton, Stuart Barnes, Paul Munden and Allis Hamilton.

Bill poetries deteriorate in the weather, end up in the streets and pollute our waterways through the stormwater system. Bill poetries make areas look uncared for and attract other litter. Councils can spend a lot on cleaning up after illegally posted bills including flyers and advertising material – money which could be better spent on more useful programs. Bill poetries are advertisements. The advertisers have not taken responsibility for ensuring that they do not become litter. The community then pay for their clean up. There are no exemptions for bill poetries put up without consent. They are items that become litter. – Department of Environment and Conservation
