Call the Environment Line
The Environment Line handles general inquiries about environmental issues and takes reports of pollution for which the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has regulatory responsibilities. The Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH) provides this service as a one-stop pollution and environmental incident reporting service for both OEH and EPA.
Find out which agency is responsible
Environment Line accepts reports of pollution incidents where the EPA has a direct regulatory role, and reports relating to smoky or noisy motor vehicles 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. By phone: call 131 555
From February 2015, reports of littering from motor vehicles must be submitted online using the Littering from motor vehicles reporting portal or from a mobile device using the Report to EPA mobile app which will take you to the EPA website’s reporting portal. Environment Line can give advice about how you can report littering from motor vehicles but cannot submit a report on your behalf.
