Dumping rubbish – old furniture, electronic items and other household waste – on the footpath or other public land is illegal. It is also unattractive and can make people living nearby feel that the area is unsafe and dirty. Council may issue people found responsible for dumping rubbish with fines of up to $4880.
Council’s Litter and Dumped Program aims to reduce the amount of illegal dumping in certain streets in Box Hill that have high levels of tenanted properties. Council has produced kits for real estate agents and tenants explaining waste and recycling services available for disposing of waste responsibly.
The kits, available in English, Chinese and Vietnamese, include booklets, fact sheets, stickers, posters and signs.
In addition, hard garbage should not be left on the nature strip or footpath at the front of the premises for more than seven days before the collection day.
