Policy on Litter and Illegal Dumping

The Shire encourages residents and visitors to help keep our natural environment clean and litter free. Littering is an offence under the Litter Act and the Shire’s Rangers will issue fines to offenders. People caught illegally dumping waste in bushland areas or on road verges will receive a $200 on the spot fine. Under the Litter Act they could also face prosecution and incur a fine of up to $1,000.

Residents with any concerns or enquiries can contact the Shire's Ranger on (08) 9576 4600 between the hours of 8.00am and 5.00pm seven days a week.
