Roadside litter is one of our region's most unnecessary and preventable environmental problems.
The NSW EPA can issue fines of $250 for an individual and $500 for a corporation for littering from a vehicle, based on reports from members of the public who are over 18.
By registering to report littering from vehicles to the EPA, you are part of the solution to the issue of litter. Litter damages our natural environments, harms wildlife and sea creatures, can injure people and makes our spaces less safe. Litter is also very costly. Clarence Valley Council spends an enormous amount every year managing litter in our valley.
Reporting littering from a vehicle is part of a comprehensive NSW State Government anti-littering program that aims to reduce the volume of litter in NSW by 40% by 2020. Council encourages everyone in our region to get on board. Visit ‘Report to EPA’ to register.
