Report to EPA mobile app
Report to EPA is a free mobile app for reporting pollution in NSW to the Environment Protection Authority (EPA).
Report to EPA is available for free on iPhone, Android and other mobile devices.
If you are an iPhone user, it is recommended that you upgrade your operating system software to iOS8 prior to using the app.
How it works
Report to EPA allows you to quickly and easily report pollution incidents you observe. You can report:
- smoky vehicles
- littering from vehicles
- noisy exhaust.
Whether you're on the road, cycling or walking, the app is at your fingertips so you can report pollution while on the go. Simply record the vehicle details, tell us where and when you saw it, and we'll take care of the rest.
For smoky or noisy vehicles
Vehicle details are matched with a valid registration and the report is reviewed by an EPA compliance officer. If the report is determined to be valid, the owner of the vehicle will be sent an advisory letter.
For littering from vehicles
Vehicle details are matched with a valid registration. If the report is deemed to be valid, the owner of the vehicle will be sent a penalty notice, imposing a fine.
Safety first! It is unlawful for drivers to use a mobile phone to record this information unless the car is parked. Your health and safety are always more important than reporting motor vehicle pollution. If you are driving, ask a passenger to record the details. If recording the required details affects your concentration or driving, wait until next time to make a report. If pollution is coming from a vehicle, it is only a matter of time before it is observed and reported by another member of the public, the police or an authorised officer.
Why report motor vehicle pollution?
The EPA is working to minimise community exposure to pollution from motor vehicles in NSW. Your reports will help ensure that vehicle owners are aware of the pollution they are causing, and understand and comply with the regulations surrounding motor vehicle pollution.
Other types of reports will be included on future versions of the app.
