Report illegal dumping

The Regional Illegal Dumping (RID) Program operates in Lake Macquarie to help prevent illegal dumping.

Illegal dumping differs from littering in that it involves a considerable amount of waste, and a vehicle has normally been used to transport the waste to the dump site. You can report littering through our 'Report an issue' page.
