Litter and illegal dumping

The City of Kwinana strives to keep our community beautiful.

The City uses preventative measures to address littering issues including overt/covert CCTV surveillance and our City Assist team is authorised to enforce the provisions of the Litter Act 1979.

Litter can take many forms including;

  • rubbish thrown from a moving vehicle or by pedestrians;
  • building rubbish, household rubbish or green waste placed on street verges;
  • placing advertising materials on vehicle windscreens;
  • dumped shopping trolleys;
  • improperly disposing of used syringes; and
  • abandoned vehicles.

Penalties apply if litter is not disposed of appropriately.

For further information on littering and illegal dumping, please contact City Assist on 9439 0400 or via email or check the Keep Australia Beautiful Council website.​​
