Illegal dumping

Illegal dumping is a crime. Clean up and disposal costs us time and money that could be better spent in making our community better.

How to report illegal dumping 

If you see or suspect someone dumping waste illegally, you can report it to Council.

If it is safe to do so, please get the following information:

  • where the dumping occurred
  • what material was dumped
  • a description of the person
  • vehicle registration number and description

Then report it to us:
