Eyes on it Campaign

Illegal dumping in Canterbury-Bankstown has been reduced by 57 per cent, following the successful staging of the second phase of the #EyesOnIt campaign.

Mayor Khal Asfour said, so far this year, residents have reported more than 4,500 illegal dumps.

“The #EyesOnIt campaign empowers residents to report dumped rubbish in their neighbourhoods,” he said.

“In the first two weeks of the campaign, more than 660 dumps were investigated.

“We also saw 45 per cent of illegal kerbside dumps actually removed by residents, who realised they had done the wrong thing.

“In fact, there’s been a 64 per cent increase in reports of illegal dumping to Council – this shows just how successful this campaign is.”

Placing items on the street without a Booked Clean Up can attract a fine of up to $4,000 for individuals and $8,000 for businesses.

Residents can book two free clean-ups each year, where furniture, metal appliances and even garden waste, will be collected, at a time that suits them.

Mayor Asfour said there are a number of ways to book.

“With our easy-to-use online booking system, clean-ups can be booked very quickly, up to six months in advance, and can be rescheduled or cancelled any time prior to 10am the day before collection,” he said.

To report instances of illegal dumping, visit cb.city/reportit or call 9707 9000. To report any instances of dumped commercial materials, residents should contact the Sydney Regional Illegal Dumping squad on 131 555.
