Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping is the unlawful placement of discarded rubbish, such as furniture, electrical goods or building materials, in public areas.

Placing your clean-up material on kerbside for collection without booking a clean-up, or placing it out earlier than the night before your booked collection day, is also treated as illegal dumping.

Illegal dumping costs our community over $800,000 each year, is bad for the environment, and detracts from the beauty of our City. Those found guilty of illegal dumping face fines or fees in excess of $500 and up to $250,000.
