After you finish

Our waste contractors and cleansing teams collect illegal dumps depending on the items present.

All items will be collected within 2 working days, but we may not be able to collect them all at once.

Dumped items causing a public safety hazard or blocking public access will be prioritised within 4 hours.

Using our online form allows us to service your report efficiently and provide you with timely updates along the way.
