Your feedback helps the City of Gold Coast achieve targets outlined in the Litter and Illegal Dumping Reduction Plan (2019–2024). The plan aims to slow this growth and change littering and illegal dumping behaviours across the city using a more proactive approach.

Our challenge

More than 1000 tonnes of litter and illegally dumped waste is collected around the Gold Coast each year which results in an annual clean-up bill of around $7 million. That’s money that could be spent elsewhere – like improving community facilities and services.

The City of Gold Coast employ street sweepers, beach rakers, a fleet of bin collection vehicles and a small army of dedicated cleaners, gardeners and rangers. We service 3,500 public bins across the city and our 12 waste and recycling centres are open 363 days a year. This is in addition to the countless individuals and community groups who take pride in keeping their local areas clean. It is important that the City of Gold Coast manages the rubbish that comes with urbanisation otherwise it can become a significant financial, social and environmental risk.

Timing

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.

Community engagement runs from 11 November to 2 December 2020.
*terms and conditions apply for City Tourist Parks vouchers valued at $500.
