Waste Info - Littering

What you can do


Help Queensland become the cleanest state in Australia by taking your waste with you and disposing of it in the right places. Other things you can do include:

  • picking up any litter you see
  • using reusable containers and water bottles
  • carrying a litter bag in your car or on your bicycle
  • carrying your cigarette butts and chewing gum with you or use a pocket ashtray until you find a bin
  • picking up after your dog
  • when cleaning your footpath, pick up rubbish instead of sweeping or hosing it into gutters leading to our stormwater drains
  • reporting littering and illegal dumping incidents to Council or DES.
