Dumping is leaving any unwanted waste (including rubbish, furniture, electrical goods, mattresses and garden waste) onto both public and private land. It is illegal, and anyone caught dumping can be fined between $750 and $1500 on the spot.
Each financial year, Council offers three free scheduled clean up services and one free on-call clean up service. You can also organise a pre-paid on call clean up if you can't wait until your next free scheduled clean up.
Please note that everything from these clean-ups ends up in a landfill. If you have household items that are in good condition that you no longer need, access our Collection and Re-Homing Service to dispose of these items responsibly.
The A-Z of Recycling lists other ways you can responsibly dispose of many different types of unwanted goods, including mattresses, timber and solvents.
Council staff will be actively investigating any illegal dumping that occurs in the area.
The Office of Environment and Heritage has more information about dumping.
