Littering

Keep our city beautiful and litter-free. Report cases of littering to the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder's rangers.

What is litter?

Every time someone carelessly throws or drops a cigarette butt onto the ground, they are littering. Such acts could result in bushfires, and are a danger to the community.

Every time someone carelessly abandons a vehicle in our bushland, they spoil the natural beauty and risk polluting the soil with chemicals.

Every time someone carelessly dumps rubbish on the ground, they are endangering local wildlife and adding unnecessary hazards to our land.

Littering is unacceptable to the community.

If you see someone littering, please report it your local ranger .
