Report Illegal Dumping

Shoalhaven City Council Rangers work hard to combat illegal dumping. With 49 towns and villages in the Shoalhaven, there is a lot of ground to cover. Council needs your help to report anything that you may see in your local area.

By reporting illegal dumping you can help prevent damage to the environment and reduce risks to human health. Dumpers face heavy fines and repeat offenders can be sentenced to prison.
