Dob A Dumper Report Form

'Littering' or 'Dumping' is anything at all that is left behind, thrown or discarded onto a place where it does not belong. It can be a deliberate act or it can be as a result of not securing a load correctly. Either way, let us know if you see someone doing it. Some examples include;

 

Littering

  • A cigarette butt thrown or dropped by a driver or passenger
  • Garden refuse or household rubbish leaving or blowing from a ute, or trailer
  • Any material, rubbish or personal items falling or blowing from the back of a ute, boat or truck
  • Food or drink containers deliberately thrown or dropped from a vehicle
  • Packing material, plastic wrap, placards, signs, notes or other commercial materials coming from a vehicle load
  • Leaving fishing scraps and fish offal on a beach or beach lands

 

Dumping

  • Building materials left behind or deliberately deposited in a public place
  • Garden refuse, cutting or pruning’s or household goods deliberately left in a place other than the tip
  • Commercial or household rubbish, or waste left in a place other than the tip
  • Cars or car parts left in the bush
  • Rubbish of any kind deposited outside of a bin or waste facility
