Complete a Survey and win $150 Hardware Voucher

Illegal Dumping is a Crime

Have your say on Ballina Shire Council’s Asbestos Awareness Campaign to win a $150 to spend at your local hardware store.

Over the past 12 months, Ballina Shire Council has participated in a media campaign to raise awareness of illegally dumped asbestos. Ads were developed for TV, radio, local papers and Council newsletters with the assistance of NE Waste.

Illegally dumped asbestos places a significant environmental and financial cost on Council. Private contractors often need to be engaged to do the clean up because of the potentially dangerous health risks associated with asbestos.

Tash Morton, Illegal Dumping Coordinator with NE waste says, “In the past 12 months Councils in the Northern Rivers have cleaned up 15 loads of illegally dumped asbestos at an estimated cost of $30,000.”

Your feedback is helpful for us in developing future campaigns on illegal dumping.
Complete the survey before 31 July at to go in the draw to win.
This program has been funded with the support of the NSW EPA Waste Less, Recycle More initiative funded from the waste levy.
