Litter and Illegal Dumping

Learn how to help to keep our natural environment clean. Find out how to prevent illegal dumping, report incidents and prevent litter ending up in our natural environment.

The City of Kwinana strives to keep our community beautiful.

The City uses preventative measures to address littering issues including CCTV surveillance and our teams are authorised to enforce the provisions of the Litter Act 1979 and the Waste Local Law 2022.

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.

Help prevent litter

We need your help to keep our natural environment litter free. You can report litter by contacting the City on 9439 0200 or by sending us an email on customer@kwinana.wa.gov.au.

Do not overfill public bins

Overfull public bins often create unsightly litter that damages our beautiful natural environment. Weather and animals can easily remove the overflowing waste from a bin.  If a public bin is full, please take your rubbish home and place it in your bin.  

Secure your load

If you have loaded your trailer or ute, remember to secure your load and prevent litter. Unsecured loads can cause unsightly roadside litter and can be dangerous.

Visit Unsecured Load Unsafe Road to find out more.

Close your bin lid

Ensure that your bin lids are closed when you present your bins for collection and that they are not overfull. This will assist to reduce accidental litter ending up in our natural environment.

Overfilling your bins may result in an infringement under the City’s Waste Local Law.

In accordance with the Litter Act, any litter blown out of your bin or removed by animals due to misuse is your responsibility. You are required to clean your waste up to ensure that the environment not negatively impacted by your waste.
