Illegal Dumping

Call Liverpool City Counicl on 1300 362 170 if you need to throw out old furniture, white goods, mattresses or building materials.

Illegal dumping costs the Liverpool community a great deal each year. Dumped waste can consist of dangerous items such as syringes, asbestos and toxic waste.  

The State Government has set fines of up to $250,000 fro an individual. You can read about the laws and penalties here.

Frequently dumped items include unwanted household materials like furniture, whitegoods, mattresses, garden organics, building and renovation materials or garbage bags full of rubbish.

Dumped rubbish harms the environment, is unsightly, unhealthy, attracts vermin, can be a physical and fire hazard and can encourage others to dump their waste.

  • Please do not place waste outside of your property until the night before your pickup.
