For local government

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

LR logo 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.

Adopt-a-Spot

Adopt-a-SpotThe 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 adoptaspot@kabc.wa.gov.au to discuss partnership possibilites and arrangements.
