Become an Environmental Crusader

Illegal dumping is the unlawful deposit of waste larger than litter on both public and private land and includes using waste as fill material without the appropriate approvals. Illegal dumping ranges from small bags of rubbish in urban areas to large scale dumping of waste material in isolated bushland.

Moree Plains Shire Council is calling on the public to help stop the illegal dumping of rubbish on private and public land. Illegal dumping degrades the environment, risks public health and the community pays a high cost to clean it up.

Council has spent thousands of ratepayer dollars investigating and removing illegally dumped materials from the perimeter of landfills, road sides, river banks and open spaces and is keen to catch offenders and penalise them.

We are looking for more ‚Äėenvironmental crusaders‚Äô who are willing to come forward and report people who are dumping illegally.

Reporting illegal dumping can be done anonymously but it is important that as much information is relayed to Council so the matter can be investigated.

We need to know where and when the dumping took place, type of vehicle and registration and photographs are of great assistance

Illegal dumping can have adverse effects on native flora and fauna, as well as encouraging vermin, introducing weed species, contaminating land and local waterways, and posing health risks and fire hazards to the community.

With the help of ‚Äėenvironmental crusaders‚Äô, Moree Plains Shire Council has issued penalty infringement notices to illegal dumpers under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act, 1997.

Fines for individuals have ranged from $750 - $1500 and businesses that illegally dumped have been fined between $1500 - $5000.

Council has and will continue to issue clean-up notices, and on-the-spot fines and where necessary prosecute offenders in the Land and Environment Court.

Please be aware that known hotspots may be subject to surveillance.
