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.
