Let’s talk about possible ways to manage illegal rubbish dumping.

How do I prevent neighbours from dumping rubbish on my property?

It is not the best experience you would like to have when a neighbour dumps rubbish in your property or skip bins. The costs to remove dumped waste can run into thousands of dollars, which is all your cost to bear.

Here are some tips and tricks for you:

  1. Temporary Fencing: Always use temporary fencing to cordon off your block as soon as you can.
  2. Photos: Take photos with time and date as this may help if you need to challenge the council in future should you be the victim of illegal dumping resulting in a council fine.
  3. Signage: Put up signage on the fence stating “this area is under regular surveillance”. Trespassers would be prosecuted
  4. Monitor: Regularly check the site. If you know someone local, as them to check in from time to time.
  5. Builders: Talk and introduce yourself to any builders adjoining your property so they know you are switched on. The fact is most illegal dumping comes from neighbouring builders sadly.
  6. CCTV: If you have CCTV cameras operating and if you notice someone dumped rubbish in your property or bin then you can report to the local council. 
  7. At first sign of any dumping, get us to remove it as leaving it signals a GREEN light to dumpers and it will fast become a problem hotspot, for which you are 100% liable.

In the community, it’s everyone’s responsibility to do the right thing by not dumping any kind of rubbish in neighbour’s gardens, front yard or nature strip. You should always use a professional rubbish removal Melbourne company if you have rubbish which you would like to get rid of.
