Regional Litter and Illegal Dumping Plan

Action to reduce litter and Illegal dumping in Gippsland

Litter and illegal dumping of household and industrial waste are persistent problems in Victoria. While littering attitudes and behaviours have improved we need continued action to reduce littering and illegal dumping across the state.

What is litter? Litter is broadly defined as small items of waste that is disposed of inappropriately.

What is illegal dumping? Illegal dumping is broadly defined as larger items, such as bigger than a shopping bag, disposed of inappropriately.

In June 2019, the Goulburn Valley, Gippsland, Loddon Mallee and North East Waste and Resource Recovery Groups (WRRGs), collaborated to successfully obtain funding from Sustainability Victoria to develop a Regional Litter and Illegal Dumping Plan for each group.

Key components of its development were targeted stakeholder workshops and a community survey.

The plan is a result of a partnership between councils, state government departments and agencies, along with community and environmental groups and drew on local evidence to identify the top five litter and illegal dumping priorities for the region.
