Illegal Dumping

Dumping is illegal and there is more chance than ever of offenders getting caught.

Cameras and signage have been installed around the Paroo Shire to catch and fine illegal dumpers. The Queensland Government’s Waste Reduction and Recycling Act 2011 (WRR Act) states that individuals can be fined from $533 up to $53,380 if they are found to be dumping rubbish and waste illegally.

Not only are there fines for those doing the wrong thing, their actions impact everyone by costing Council more money in clean-up, creating an eyesore and fire hazard risk, and polluting our environment.

For more information including how to legally dispose of your rubbish contact Council on 07 4655 8400.
