Crime Stoppers WA and the Dept of Water & Environmental Regulation (DWER) have joined forces in a campaign to expose the illegal dumping of demolition waste and asbestos in Western Australia.
If you work in those industries where you see demolition and disposal of building waste material, including asbestos, you might know about some rogue traders who are doing the wrong thing. It’s your industry and your responsibility to report any illegal practices and keep the industry clean.
For home renovators, make sure you use licensed contractors and be curious as to where your demolition waste is really going. Ask for a receipt of disposal as you are the ones who pay a fee for it to be done properly.
If you see a truck backed up unloading waste onto any land other than a landfill, take some photos and get the registration number, if it’s safe to do this.
Don’t let our beautiful landscape become illegal landfill.
If you see something, say something. You can report online anonymously and your information will go directly to DWER investigators. We’re interested in your information, not your identity.
