Fines for dumping rubbish poster


We all want to live in clean and green streets, which is why illegal dumping is a concern for both residents and Council. If you dump rubbish, the chances of getting caught are greater than ever. Council’s officers, the Regional Illegal Dumping (RID) Squad and residents across the area are working to find and report dumpers.  

If you see anyone dumping unwanted material on the streets, bushland or industrial areas, please report it. Fines of up to $4000 for individuals and $8000 for corporations apply.   

Reports can be made to:


  • Council, either online or by calling 9707 9000; or

  • The NSW EPA through RID Online or calling 131 555.
