The Environment Line handles general inquiries about environmental issues and takes reports of pollution for which the EPA has regulatory responsibilities. Environment Line is a one-stop pollution and environmental incident reporting service provided by the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment.
The EPA may not be responsible for regulating or responding to the pollution that you observe. The local council or another organisation may be responsible for regulating the pollution and is the appropriate agency to report the incident to.
- Find out which agency is responsible for dealing with the issue.
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. Phone: 131 555.
If you see littering from a motor vehicle, make a report online, or use Report to EPA from your mobile phone. Environment Line can give advice about how you can report littering from motor vehicles but cannot submit a report on your behalf.
