Why it matters

Public Consultation on the draft NSW Illegal Dumping Strategy 2022-2027

Your feedback will help shape the proposed approaches the NSW EPA has towards tackling illegal dumping.

The EPA has developed the draft NSW Illegal Dumping Prevention Strategy 2022-2027 to guide actions across the state.

We asked for feedback to give us insights into what aspects of the strategy you think will be the most effective and if there are any areas that we have missed.

The strategy uses the following six approaches to combatting illegal dumping:

  • moving towards a circular economy
  • collaboration and capacity building
  • services, infrastructure and clean-up
  • behaviour change, awareness and engagement
  • regulation, enforcement and legislative reform
  • growing our evidence through research, monitoring and evaluation.

The strategy outlines what has been achieved under each approach over the past five years and EPA's plans for the next five years.
