Illegal dumpers beware

Furniture and tree clippings dumped on the street. Surveillance is now active in illegal dumping sites across the Territory.

Surveillance of illegal dumping sites has commenced in the Territory to catch those who are illegally disposing of their waste.

The community is asked to continue to report illegal dumping when they see it. Reporting illegal dumping sites allows crews to clean the area as well as identifying where illegal dumping is occurring so we can catch those responsible.

Fines for littering or illegal dumping range from $7,500 to $75,000 for individuals and up to $375,000 for businesses.

The community is encouraged to report illegal dumping to Access Canberra on 13 22 81 or online through the Access Canberra feedback form at Access Canberra.
