Keep Australia Beautiful WA (KABWA) works to build strong partnerships with local government in programs and initiatives to reduce litter and littering in Western Australia.
Litter reporter scheme
Litter Reporters are local government's eyes on the road, because community members can report littering and illegal dumping offences in their area. The information provided by litter reporters can result in the issuing of an infringement notice to the owner of the vehicle with fines starting at $200 for a cigarette butt or general littering. Local government officers can also use the 1300 number if unable to stop the offender.
The Adopt-a-Spot program encourages volunteers to select a site and care for it by carrying out clean-ups and keeping the site litter-free. Litter bags, gloves, tongs and insurance are provided by KABWA to registered groups. KABWA is actively seeking partnerships with local government in Adopt-a-Spot promotion, coordination and the provision of resources. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss partnership possibilites and arrangements.
A range of resources are available for use by local government media departments to promote the anti-litter messaging, including:
Provide residents with a link to the KAB Litter Toolkit to assist in litter management planning.
Templates for signage
Provision of signage templates to discourage littering and illegal dumping on roadsides and around waterways, jetties and boat ramps.
