Council resource kit

This resource kit is designed to help councils spread information about the dangers of accepting ‘free’ fill and educate residents about steps they can take to help prevent harm.

Local councils receive regular reports of fill being delivered to unsuspecting property owners with promises that it is clean and harmless, only to find that it is contaminated with building and demolition waste, general rubbish, chemicals, heavy metals or even asbestos.

Many councils already run local campaigns to educate residents about the dangers of accepting ‘free’ fill onto their properties.

Running a local community education campaign is a vital way of reaching the community.

This resource kit is designed to help councils spread information about the dangers of accepting ‘free’ fill and educate residents about steps they can take to help prevent harm.

Councils can download the artwork for education materials including posters and Facebook ads that can be used on social media. You can add your own logo to localise your campaign.

The materials are also available in three community languages

  • Simplified Chinese
  • Arabic
  • Vietnamese
