This equates to almost three kilograms of litter per person per year. As part of an integrated Victorian Government response to protect and improve our environment, EPA Victoria and Sustainability Victoria have worked together to launch a Summer Litter Campaign.
The campaign – ‘A cleaner Victoria is in your hands’ – aims to educate and inform you about the impact of litter on water and land and to encourage more of you to report incidents of litter. We want Victorians to be empowered to stop litter where it starts.
Between January and March 2013, when we are out and about enjoying our beautiful state, Victorians will be reminded to do the right thing and put their litter, particularly cigarette butts and food and drink packaging, into bins.
For those caught littering, there are fines to face ranging from $282 to $563.
Every Victorian can make a difference.
A giant litter box installation was the focus in both St Kilda and Bendigo this January, giving the public an idea of just how much litter is found across Victoria. The volume of litter contained in the box was symbolic of the litter generated by just 300 Victorians each year. Research tells us that the average Victorian litters almost 3kg of litter each year, adding up to a total of 14,560 tonnes statewide.
This summer report litterers on the move by using EPA's Report Litter iPhone App or by using any of the forms found on this page.
