Litter and Illegal Dumping

Littering and the illegal dumping of waste can have serious environmental, social and economic impact. The cost of cleaning up litter and illegally dumped waste is borne by the community.

We can all play a part in keeping our municipality litter free. The Keep Australia Beautiful website provides information on how schools, clubs, businesses and community groups can get involved in clean-up campaigns.

Report Litter

Help keep Western Australia litter free by reporting any littering or dumping via Keep Australia Beautiful. 

Report Littering

Illegal Dumping

The City’s Rangers can only infringe or prosecute an offence where they have sufficient evidence and are able to identify the person or person(s) responsible. If you observe someone dumping waste on public land please contact the City on 9781 0444 to report it.

Where possible, please provide the following information:

  • description of the type of waste dumped
  • date, time and place the offence was committed
  • description of the offender(s)
  • vehicle registration details
  • make, model and colour of the vehicle
  • photographic or video evidence of the offence

The City treats reports of illegal dumping confidentially and will do everything to maintain the anonymity of the person reporting the alleged offence. However, should the matter proceed to Court our ability to prove the offence may depend on the witness testimony of the person who made the initial report.
