Illegal dumping

Illegal dumping occurs in bushland, parks and at kerbside. Unbooked clean-up waste is illegal dumping. Adding waste to someone else’s booked pile is also illegal dumping. In short, Illegal dumping is against the law.

Illegal dumping creates an eyesore that reduces community pride and often attracts more illegal dumping. Dumping garden waste, soil, lawn clippings and other organic material also causes serious problem for our natural areas.

Report illegal dumping

Keep an eye out for commercial operators dumping green waste, mulch, soil, building rubble and demolition material in our parks, car parks and bushland. Report any illegal dumping you see. Take note of the time, write down number plates, descriptions of vehicles and the location. Let our waste investigators know by making an online report or calling Council on 9424 0000.

Doing the right thing is easy - book a Council bulky waste clean-up.

We also operate a whitegoods collection and mobile chipping service. We offer regular free events to dispose of e-waste and hazardous chemicals. Items can also be dropped off at Kimbriki or Suez Transfer Station Ryde.

Before booking a clean-up, have you considered selling or sharing your unwanted items via eBay, Gumtree, Freecycle or Ziilch.

Charity organisations such as The Bower Reuse and Repair Centre collect, repair and sell preloved goods.
