Regional Litter Plan

Grampians Central West Waste and Resource Recovery Group is preparing a Regional Litter and Illegal Dumping Plan.

We are keen to work with stakeholders across the region, including local government, other state government agencies, community and environmental groups and the community, to develop a plan that is based on evidence provided on litter and illegal dumping in our region and the priorities identified throughout this consultation.

A critical part of our consultation is this survey. To that end we want to hear from our community about the litter and illegal dumping issues as well as potential options for solutions to dealing with these problems.

Broadly speaking we define litter as those small or single items that are not disposed of properly while illegal dumping is made up of larger items or a collection of items that are inappropriately disposed of. Both are illegal and currently attract fines. In this survey we have separated the questions relating to both of these issues.

We want to develop a plan to deal with litter and illegal dumping that will work for our region. We are keen to hear about how we can improve the way in which items that become litter or are illegally dumped are dealt with. We want to know your views, issues and priorities.

The survey will take 15-18 minutes to complete and is confidential and anonymous. Individual responses will be collated together and then analysed as a group. The outcomes of the survey will be presented to the community as we develop the regional plan.

All we ask is that you be honest in your answers and remember that your initial response is probably the correct one for you.

The survey will remain open until midnight, Monday 5th August 2019.

We would also ask that you share the link to the survey with other local residents and community groups – the more people who undertake the survey the better the outcome will be for the regional plan.

Progress on the development of the regional plan can be tracked by returning to this page.

We thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.

We have two surveys currently open. One aimed for the general public, and one aimed at members of community groups who deal with litter issues. Please select the correct survey from the buttons below.
