Help Keep Cairns Clean: Report Littering and Illegal Dumping!


Cr. Rob Pyne has called on residents to help to Keep Cairns Clean by Reporting Littering and Illegal Dumping!

He said, “Both Littering and Illegal Dumping are illegal and punishable by law. I encourage residents to take details and report anything they see to DERM.”

The Department of Environment and Resource Management (DERM) can issue an infringement notice to the registered owner of a vehicle/vessel based on your repo0rt. Please only submit your report if you are willing to testify in court. Typically only a small number of cases proceed to court.

  1. Council needs to take some of the blame for the dumping. I had a half dozen palm leaves and a few leaves. I did the right thing, put them in the trailer, and took them to the dump, they charged me TEN DOLLARS. If you want to stop illegal dumping, stop ripping people off.
