How to report littering from a vehicle

You can help stop litter where it starts!

  • Littering from a vehicle is a major contributor to roadside and public place litter.
  • Over 90 percent of reports for littering from a vehicle is for cigarette butts!
  • From February 2015, the NSW EPA has issued penalty notices for littering from a vehicle based on the information received in reports from members of the public who are over 18.
  • Littering from a motor vehicle is covered under the NSW Protection of the Environment Operations Act (1997).
  • Reports can no longer be received by Environment Line.
