Litter and Dumping

​​​​Tasmania prides itself on its clean air, water and land, yet litter is often visible in our parks, reserves and roadsides.

Not only is litter unappealing, it ends up in our waterways and in the ocean. Reducing and preventing littering and dumping is everyone’s responsibility: governments, businesses and individuals.  The State Government is addressing these problems by increasing the penalties for littering and releasing a Report Rubbish web application to facilitate more litter clean-ups.

If you spot litter or a dumping spot that needs to be cleaned up you can report it through the EPA’s Report Rubbish website / app:

https://rubbish.epa.tas.gov.au/

The information is then forwarded to the appropriate landholder so they can collect and suitably dispose of it.
