EPA’s public litter reporting system was the first of its kind in Australia and allows you to report someone you see littering from or near motor vehicles. Rubbish thrown from a motor vehicle is a major source of litter and costs millions of dollars each year to remove.
Help EPA by reporting this type of pollution, which includes cigarette butts, food packaging and beverage containers. Simply record the registration, make, colour, model, location, date and time, plus a description of the litter and submit within seven days of seeing the offence.
Submit a report when you’re on the go by using the Report Litter app available for iPhone and Android smartphones from iTunes or Google Play.
The app runs on iOS 6 and above for Apple iPhone and on Android 4.0.1 oupwards.
If you don’t have a smartphone, you can also report litter through our website at www.epa.vic.gov.au/report-litter or by calling 1300 372 842 (1300 EPA VIC).
