TIPPING VOUCHERS

Dubbo Regional Council provides residents with one free visit to a Council waste facility under a Tipping Voucher scheme. Council's Tipping Vouchers are digital, which means that when you arrive at a waste facility you’ll be required to provide proof of address so we can process your free visit. Find out more at Council's dedicated webpage Tipping Vouchers.

ILLEGAL DUMPING

Illegal dumping is the unlawful deposit of waste, larger than litter, onto land or into water. It includes waste materials that have been dumped, tipped or otherwise deposited onto private or public land where no licence or approval exists to accept such waste. Illegal dumping at one of Council's waste facilities can be reported through Council's dedicated webpage Pollution and Illegal Dumping.
