Littered or dumped waste has many negative environmental, social and economic impacts, including:
Fines of up to $1800 can be issued to individuals and $6000 for corporations found dumping or littering.
There is no excuse for littering as the majority of general household waste can be removed via Council's supplied green or red lid wheelie bins or yellow lid bins for recyclable items.
Fees and charges for domestic and commercial waste are kept to a minimum and should not pose a deterrent to the correct disposal of litter. Green waste can also be disposed of free at all Transfer Stations and the Benaraby Landfill.
