Illegal Dumping

Hard Waste At Call.png

Illegal dumping is the deliberate disposal of materials onto public land without a licence, permit or approval from the relevant authority. It is a criminal offence, with a maximum penalty of $5,000.

Illegal dumping is a concern as it can cause environmental harm and can be a public safety risk, especially when there are sharp objects and asbestos involved.

Illegally dumped waste is also expensive for Council and the community to clean up.

If you have any items to dispose of, please see information on our website under the following categories:

  • A-Z Domestic Waste Disposal Guide
  • Electronic Waste
  • Hard Waste Collection
  • Hazardous Waste

If you see illegal dumping activity on public land please contact the Ranger Services at the City of Burnside on 8366 4200.
