REPORT LITTERING FROM VEHICLES
If you see someone littering from their vehicle, you can report them to the EPA. Fines from $250 can be issued from your report.
To report littering from a vehicle you need to:
- have actually seen the litter being thrown, or blown, from the vehicle
- be able to provide the vehicle registration details and the location where the littering took place
- report the incident within 14 days
- make your report online
STATEWIDE TOSSER BLITZ TARGETS LITTERING
The EPA is targeting littering from motor vehicles and in public places through a statewide Tosser Blitz over March and April.
The EPA is working with other state government agencies, local councils and companies including Woolworths and McDonalds on a large-scale, statewide behavioural change and enforcement campaign targeting drivers along major highways who throw litter on the roads.
USING BOTTLES TO TRACK THE MOVEMENT OF LITTER
The EPA will toss 40 GPS-tracked plastic bottles into harbours, rivers and lakes across the state to demonstrate how litter moves once it enters our waterways. This exercise will show people what happens to rubbish that is thrown thoughtlessly onto streets, highways and beaches or into waterways. Updates will be shared via Facebook.
