Illegal dumping is an environmental crime and can cause serious environmental pollution, pose a risk to human health and impact local amenities and community pride. The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) acknowledges that the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people is related to the protection of the environment.

Illegally dumped waste impacts on Aboriginal people’s ability to care for Country. Aboriginal land is particularly susceptible to illegal dumping because it is often located in remote areas.

Projects funded under Round 5 of the ALCUP program can be carried out for up to 18 months.
