Enforcement and training campaigns

We regularly run litter awareness campaigns and enforcement training.

EPA litter enforcement campaigns

Throughout the year, we run campaigns to raise community awareness and enforce littering laws. To hold litterers to account, council rangers and state agencies issue fines for littering, year round. The EPA can also issue fines for littering from vehicles based on reports from members of the public.

Training for enforcement officers

We work with regulatory agencies, particularly local councils, to develop knowledge, skills and resources so they can better enforce litter laws and prevent litter locally.

Training workshops for enforcement officers are conducted through AELERT Professional Development and Training. See the AELERT website for course dates.

An online learning module is also available via the EPA website.
