Victorians generate 14,560 tonnes of litter every year. This equates to almost 3kg of litter per person every year.
Our municipality is fortunate be situated on a beautiful part of northern Victoria, with the Murray River and lakes district right on our doorstep.
To protect our unique environment for generations to come, Council’s Authorised Officers undertake a proactive compliance and investigation program to ensure littering offences are reduced.
If you’re found guilty of a littering you may be issued with an on-the-spot fine. Fines for littering can range from $289 to $577.
Fines for illegal dumping can attract a maximum penalty of $610,700 for individuals and up to $1.2 million for a corporation.
