EPA Victoria is working to support councils who deal with illegal dumping issues to share their successes, knowledge and ideas around tackling dumping problems.
Illegal dumping is a cost that is difficult for councils to plan for, because by its nature dumping is an unknown until after it happens.
Research conducted by EPA’s Illegal Dumping Strike Force program has shown that on average, each council is paying around $76,000 a year to clean up 38,697 incidents of dumping, totalling more than 33,000 tonnes of illegally dumped waste.
For those with large expanses of vacant land and semi-rural roadside areas in outer metropolitan growth areas these rates are much more severe.
