Illegal Rubbish Dumping
Illegal Rubbish Dumping refers to the dumping of large items of rubbish on public land such as roadsides, bushland and coastal reserves and parks or private land without authorization. Rubbish dumping is a criminal offence and can incur heavy penalties.
Illegal dumping is hurting the community and the environment.
The Shire has placed large mobile CCTV and covert cameras around the Peninsula. Signs, fences, gates and bollards has been installed to prevent people from accessing reserves. We also regularly monitor known dumping locations.
The Shire needs your help to prevent dumping and catch dumpers, Dob in Dumpers.
