Litter Control

Rangers enforce the Litter Act 1979 in the Shire of Dardanup and penalties may apply if litter is not disposed of appropriately.

Litter can take many forms:

  • Rubbish thrown from a moving vehicle or by pedestrians;
  • Building rubbish, household rubbish or greenwaste placed on street verges;
  • Placing advertising materials on vehicle windscreens;
  • Dumped shopping trolleys;
  • Improperly disposing of used syringes;
  • Abandoned vehicles; and
  • Disregarded cigarette butts.
