Report Illegal Dumping (RID) tool

If you see large illegally dumped items, or items that remain after a bulky waste collection service the best thing you can do is report it through the EPA's RID ONLINE tool

Reporting illegal dumping not only aids the EPA and Council in safeguarding human health and the environment, detecting and penalising dumpers, but also assists in finding and cleaning up dumped waste, and identifying dumping hot-spots to prevent this behaviour in your area in the future.

My bulky waste kerbside collection has not been collected. Why?

There are a few reasons why we may not have removed your bulky waste, please go through this checklist prior to contacting the hotline:

  • You did not meet presentation requirements and have received a non-collection slip in your mailbox.
  • You placed your items out on the kerbside the week of your allocated booking and did not add to the pile.
  • Vehicles or other obstructions prevented drivers from collecting materials
  • The items were presented in a way that made it difficult for our drivers to remove it. Please review the guidelines at the beginning of this page for more information on how your kerbside collection must be presented.
  • Your items were located on private property and not on the kerbside. Our drivers will not enter private property to collect waste.

If none of the above applies, we may have missed your collection. To report a missed service, contact the Bulky Waste Collection Hotline 1300 133 969.
