Residents encouraged to share their views about litter and illegal dumping

The Goulburn Valley Waste and Resource Recovery Group (GVWRRG) is seeking the community’s views, concerns and priorities about litter and illegal dumping in the region through an online community survey.

The community survey is open until Sunday 4 August 2019 and is available on the Engage Victoria website at www.engage.vic.gov.au/regional-litter-and-illegal-dumping-plans/goulburn-valley

The results of the survey will help develop a Regional Litter and Illegal Dumping Plan that will include a number of actions to tackle the top five litter and illegal dumping priorities.

Goulburn Valley residents are encouraged to complete the survey and share their thoughts on areas such as litter hotspots, how illegal dumping may have impacted on them, the ease at which littering and illegal dumping can be reported and any ideas they may have on litter prevention.

The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, is confidential and anonymous and individual responses will be collated and analysed as group data. As an incentive, participants can provide their email address or phone number (which is kept separate to the survey responses) to enter a draw to win a $100 gift card (for use anywhere that takes EFTPOS).

Funding to develop the regional plan is provided by the Victorian Government. The plan and action plan will be used to apply for external funding as it becomes available. A stakeholder workshop will be held in August to present the results of the survey and available data to consider the region’s top five priorities and the actions needed to reduce litter and illegal dumping.

Surveys must be completed by midnight on Sunday 4 August 2019 and the results will be reported back to the community in the following months.
