Illegal Rubbish Dumping

Dumped rubbish

The dumping of large items of rubbish on public land such as roadsides, bushland and coastal reserves and parks or private land without authorisation is illegal. Rubbish dumping is a criminal offence and can incur heavy penalties.

Illegal dumping costs the community financially and damages the environment.

To reduce these costs and impacts the Shire has placed large mobile CCTV and covert cameras around the Peninsula. Signs, fences, gates and bollards have been installed to prevent people from accessing reserves. We also regularly monitor known dumping locations.

We need your help to prevent dumping and catch dumpers.

Provide the following information with your report:

  • Location of dumped waste
  • Date and time you saw the rubbish being dumped
