ASBG comments on the EPA's Illegal Dumping Strategy included:

  • The Strategy avoided discussing high costs of disposal as a main cause of  illegal dumping.  High gate fees are generally the result of the waste levy and tight regulatory controls, which could be lowered.
  • Better enforcement is required but there are gaps in the Regional Illegal Dumping Squads areas across NSW, especially in the greater Sydney area.
  • Illegal dumping was poorly defined with the Strategy limited to only publically accessible land, ignoring private lands and other illegal disposals.
  • Victims of illegal dumping are often required to pay for cleanup costs, of which there is no victim support, for individuals and for businesses.
