How to report littering from a vehicle

You can help stop litter where it starts!

Most people in NSW find roadside and community litter offensive and want to see this problem reduced! The new public reporting system will help to increase awareness of the problem.

  • Research shows that no one likes a litterer.
  • Littering from a vehicle is a major contributor to roadside and public place litter.
  • Over 90 percent of reports for littering from a vehicle is for cigarette butts!
  • From February 2015, the NSW EPA has issued penalty notices for littering from a vehicle based on the information received in reports from members of the public who are over 18.
  • Littering from a motor vehicle is covered under the NSW Protection of the Environment Operations Act (1997).
  • Reports can no longer be received by Environment Line.
