Community litter and illegal dumping survey

The North East Waste and Resource Recovery Group, which plans for waste and resource recovery for the region, has received funding from the Victorian Government to develop a Regional Litter and Illegal Dumping Plan.

The plan will be the result of a partnership between councils, alpine resorts, state government departments and agencies and community and environmental groups based on local evidence identifying litter and illegal dumping priorities for the region.

To help develop the plan, we are investigating community views, concerns and priorities about items that should have been disposed of correctly that become litter or are illegally dumped. We are seeking your views on these two issues separately where litter broadly is considered to be small items of waste while illegal dumping generally relates to larger items bigger than a plastic shopping bag.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete and is confidential and anonymous. Individual responses will be collated and analysed as group data and reported back to the community as the regional plan is developed.

Completed surveys must be received by midnight Sunday 4 August 2019.


Anyone that lives in the North East region is invited to complete the survey. When you complete the survey if you choose to provide your contact email address you automatically enter a draw to win a $100 gift card.
