Litter and Dumped Rubbish

Litter and dumped rubbish is waste items that have ended up on the ground, by being thrown on the ground and not placed in a bin.
Litter and dumped rubbish can be found in many places such as streets, parks and beaches which can affect local wildlife.

Examples of litter are: a bottle thrown out the car window, a banana peel that misses a bin, a dumped trailer load of demolition rubble, lawn clippings swept into the stormwater drain or a bag of dumped rubbish on the nature strip.  

Report Dumped Rubbish

We need your help to keep our streets clean!

Report dumped rubbish to council by calling 1300 653 356 or by submitting an online request.

Provide as much detail as possible such as: the location of the dumped rubbish, the time and date and any other information that could help identify the offender (i.e. vehicle make/ type, colour and registration plates).

  • Booking a hard waste collection before putting items on the nature strip. Find out how to book a hard waste collection
  • Using your garden waste bin for lawn clippings - don't sweep them in to the drain
  • Disposing of oils or chemicals appropriately - don't pour them down the storm water drain
  • Carrying a cigarette butt bin or making sure butts are placed into litter bins not thrown on the ground
  • Carrying dog poo bags to pick up after your dog
