Illegal dumping camera signThis Code of Practice is applicable to Council's portable surveillance cameras used in a public place, which are areas where the public is encouraged to enter or have the right to visit, such as parks and reserves.


Council deploys portable surveillance cameras in order to:

  • Provide assistance to Council and other statutory authorities in responding to, investigating and prosecuting illegal dumping incidents in targeted areas.
  • Possibly prevent or reduce illegal dumping in the area under surveillance (a deterrent for potential offenders).
  • Possible deterrence to illegal dumping within the Wingecarribee Shire.
