Glenorchy City Council can look into complaints about people dumping rubbish under the Litter Act 2007 (external link).
If you see someone dumping rubbish or you find a pile of dumped litter, please contact us so we can investigate and try to work out who dumped it.
We ask that you provide the following information:
- your contact details (name, phone number, address)
- the location of the rubbish
- any extra details (i.e. number plates, time, witness accounts).
If we find evidence as to who dumped the rubbish we can give that person a fine or even prosecute them in Court. We may require you to complete a Statutory Declaration as evidence if the matter goes to Court.
Council cannot act on littering from cars (i.e cigarette butts, wrappers etc). If you want to make a complaint about someone littering from their car you can contact the Environmental Protection Authority and Report the Littering (external link).
