Report dumped rubbish or littering

Report to Council if you see someone littering or dumping rubbish on:

  • nature strips
  • parks and reserves
  • local roads

Report littering online

Please provide as much information as possible, including:

  • when and where the littering or dumping occurred
  • what kind of rubbish was littered or dumped
  • the person responsible
  • any vehicles or equipment used

The more information you provide, the easier it will be for an investigation to occur. If you are unable to report online, please contact us.

What happens next?

We will investigate your report and remove the rubbish within 5 working days.

Penalties

A person found guilty of littering or dumping rubbish can face significant fines. They may also be charged for the cost to clean up their dumped rubbish.

If the litter or rubbish dumping happened on land that belongs to another government department, they are responsible for removing it. Below are a list of other relevant government departments who can help with littering problems:
