"LOOK at this, how dangerous is that?"
Biloela Lions president Francis Moretti clutched a smashed bottle top, neck intact but with sharp, jagged points coming off it, sparkling in the sun.
This was his first time at the Lions glass crush since the Easter break.
Francis was getting ready to work with another Lions member when he was told the news.
Some time over the Easter break someone had entered the area and trashed the place by throwing glass bottles into the space where crushed glass is dispensed.
"It's just so dangerous," Francis said. "With bottles sometimes the glass doesn't crush properly on the bottom so the glass has these sharp edges.
"Not too long ago we blew a tractor tyre on a loader on a piece of glass like this."
Francis believes youths are to blame for incident.
"It tends to be something that happens on school holidays."
The same area was targeted three years ago in a similar incident.
"When kids come and are messing around and it's all glass they could slip and fall and seriously hurt themselves.
"It has been four days and no one has been around," he said. "I just don't want an accident out here.
"We have kids in sporting groups and we are the ones supporting them and they might be the same kids we are cleaning up after."
Francis said the group could have up to 100 drums of glass bottles at the site to be crushed.
But the president said fencing the area would be too expensive and impractical for the club.
"We have the bins out at the entrance for people who want to drop their bottles off so we can't really lock it up.
"It would be a heck of an expense to re-fence the rest."
Francis has called on parents to ensure their child is not part of the problem.
"Parents just need to be aware.
"If their child comes home with a cut hand maybe they should ask where they have been."
