WHAT IS IT?

Up to $8,000 on-The-spot fine

 


Illegal dumping is the placement of waste onto private or public land where no license or approval exists to accept such waste. It varies from small bags of rubbish in an urban environment to larger scale dumping of materials in isolated areas, such as bushland. Illegal dumping of waste has many social, financial and environmental implications for local councils. Councils spend in the excess of
$100,000 per annum cleaning up and disposing of dumped waste.

 

Every reasonable attempt will be made by local authorities to locate the owner of the illegally dumped materials. Your help in reporting information relating to illegally dumped materials is important.
