Illegally Dumped Rubbish Removal

Has someone trashed the vacant block intended to build your dream home?

Did you open your business premises only to find illegally dumped rubbish?

Was your nature strip used as landfill?

Dumped rubbish has become a growing problem in Australia, with its presence posing significant threats to the environment, public health, and community safety.

You can’t rely on your local council to handle illegally dumped rubbish. They often issue fines instead of collecting it, giving only a week’s notice. If the rubbish remains uncleared for seven days, you could face penalties. And, ignoring it won’t save you either, as you could still receive fines.

Our expert team is here to help! Easy Skip Hire & Rubbish Removal can efficiently and effectively clear illegally dumped rubbish for you within 24 hours, avoiding unnecessary penalties, potential health hazards, and ensuring a clean environment.

What is Illegally Dumped Rubbish?

Illegally dumping refers to waste that is unlawfully disposed of in locations such as dumped rubbish on private land, nature strips, or public areas. Unlike regular household waste, dumped rubbish disregards proper waste management practices. 

According to the EPA Victoria, dumping constitutes leaving, tipping, burying, and stockpiling waste at unlicensed locations. It’s illegal to dump rubbish on public or private land and it’s a crime that costs Victorians $30 million annually.

If I could give Steve 10 stars I would. Steve was confronted with a clean up of a unit that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemies.Steve took the time to assess the situation, provide some honest and frank feedback but then cracked on and got the job done.I could not recommend Steve more highly!
Steve was fantastic from first contact to job completion. He went above and beyond to complete an extremely challenging job. Reliable, friendly and all at an extremely reasonable price. Could not recommend him more.
Steve and his staff did an amazing clean up job. Went above and beyond and kept me fully updated throughout job progress. Could not recommend more highly.
What a fantastic service this business offers, Not only were Steve and Chayse compassionate and polite, they were extremely fast with removal, they didn't bat an eyelid at the fridge that died during a power out and still had the same food in it. They were so professional that I would hire again with a spinal injury I can only do so much. What a relief it is to be able to finish cleaning up this disaster zone. 11/10
