Littering from a vehicle

Report a tosser leader board

Report A Tosser! launched in 2015 as part of the NSW Government’s comprehensive litter prevention program. Roadside locations are the number one littered sites in NSW, and the program aims to change behaviours and reduce litter by sending a clear message that littering is unacceptable.

To report littering from a vehicle you need to:

  • have seen the litter being thrown, or blown, from the vehicle
  • provide the vehicle registration details and the location where the littering took place
  • report the incident online within 14 days using Report to EPA.

Fines from $250 for an individual and $500 for a corporation can be issued from your report.

How to report littering

Register your details to Report to EPA

The first time you submit a report you will be asked to register. You need to have your mobile phone with you to receive an SMS to verify your details. If you do not have a mobile phone, or are under 18 you will need to register offline

Registering to report verifies your contact details. We may need to contact you to get more information if a fine is issued. If the offender chooses to have the matter dealt with in court, you may be required to attend court as a witness.
