No more time reporting dumped rubbish.
Leaving rubbish on the footpath, nature strip, in a park, laneway, street or next to a bin is illegal in Melbourne, Victoria. Permanent and temporary CCTV is being used in the fight against illegal dumping. It is particularly useful in isolated areas where no one is around to keep watch.
“We did see a drop in illegal dumping after installing signs and cameras in known hotspots,” explained Micheal George, Waste Contracts Officer at Whittlesea Shire Council
“We have footage of one driver dumping green waste. As he drives off, he notices the camera, stops to read the sign, then puts all the waste back in his ute.”
