Regulatory Services Litter
The most common type of litter in Australia is discarded cigarette butts, which can take up to 5 years to break down. Please place your cigarette butts in a bin. Don't throw cigarette butts out of the window of your car - put them in a bin when you get to your destination.
Placing advertising material under people’s windscreen wipers is also a form of littering.
Any litter which you don't place in a bin can end up in Willoughby’s five water catchment areas.
Fines for littering include:
Willoughby is committed to providing a clean city for its residents and takes littering very seriously.
Help care for the environment by putting your rubbish in the bin and reporting those who don’t.
The NSW Environment Protection Authority has further information.
