Did you know Victorians
generate 14,560 tonnes of litter per year?

You can help stop litter
where it starts

Litter pollutes our roadsides, chokes our waterways and can threaten wildlife. A cleaner Victoria is in all of our hands – we can stop litter where it starts. EPA Victoria has made it easier than ever for Victorians to report litter thrown from motor vehicles. You can now report litter via EPA's website, on your smartphone, over the phone and by mail.

The campaign – ‘A cleaner Victoria is in your hands’ – aims to educate and inform all Victorians about the impact of litter on water and land and to encourage everyone to report incidents of litter. EPA is focusing on the littering of cigarette butts on our roadsides, rivers and beaches. You can play a major part in this effort – stop litter where it starts – by reporting litter thrown from a motor vehicle to EPA. EPA can then issue an infringement notice, with fines ranging from $288.72 for an unlit cigarette or small piece of rubbish to $577.44 for a lit cigarette.

The effects of litter on our environment are widespread. Around 14,560 tonnes of litter are generated by Victorians each year, costing the community around $80 million in cleanup costs.

Every Victorian can make a difference.
