Litter and illegal dumping have huge financial, social and environmental costs.
Get involved in helping us develop the Litter and Illegal Dumping Prevention Strategy 2024 to 2029.
Thanks for your feedback. The survey closed on 27 October 2023. We are reviewing your feedback and the draft Strategy will be taken to Council early in 2024.
We’ve been working hard to reduce litter and illegal dumping through our Illegal Dumping and Litter Education and Enforcement Plan. We have successfully achieved a:
- 36% reduction in illegal dumping incidents.
- 40% reduction in litter volume.
To continue to reduce the amount of littering and illegal dumping throughout the Byron Shire, we are developing an updated, longer-term strategy.
