Graffiti vandalism

Illegal rubbish dumping

Illegal rubbish dumping is a serious and unsightly problem which negatively affects our community and pollutes our environment. Learn how to report llegal dumping and about Council’s various waste collection services.

Noisy dogs

Complaints about barking dogs are one of the most common calls made to the Council’s Rangers. Learn how to prevent your dog from barking excessively and what to do if you have a nuisance barking dog in the neighbourhood.

Abandoned vehicles

Council's Rangers can investigate concerns regarding vehicles (including cars and trailers) which may have been abandoned by their owner. However if the vehicle registration is still current the vehicle is not abandoned. You can check a vehicle’s registration status using the RMS Online Free Registration Check.

Please contact Council’s Customer Service Team if you suspect a vehicle has been abandoned. The investigation to determine if a vehicle is abandoned is carried out under the Impounding Act 1993.

Abandoned shopping trolleys

Shopping trolley providers undertake routine collections in the municipality and abandoned trolleys are usually picked up within 24 hours by the respective company’s trolley collectors. Residents can also report abandoned trolleys to the respective store or online via Trolley Tracker.
