Illegal dumping creates a number of risks that may adversely affect the environment in which we live. These risks include:
Under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997, it is an offence to dispose of waste in a place that cannot lawfully be used as a waste facility. It is also an offence to cause or permit waste to be transported to, or deposited in, a place that cannot lawfully be used as a waste facility. Offences can incur significant penalties and on the spot penalty notices.
The Hunter and Central Coast Regional Illegal Dumping (RID) Squad are a team of experienced investigators who are authorised by Local Councils under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act to examine instances of illegal dumping and illegal landfill.
Do not touch the waste - it may be unsafe and it is better not to tamper with evidence. Report illegal dumping to the EPA at this link:
