Illegal dumping is leaving waste on private or public land.
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 $50,000 per annum cleaning up and disposing of dumped waste.
Report illegal dumping online and help your local council keep track of where dumping is happening and who is responsible.
