Cumberland Council works with State agencies to reduce air, water, noise and land pollution across the council area.
The council’s rangers are empowered to issue fines for the above types of pollution, including littering, under the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997.
However, the council’s preference is to educate the Cumberland community about the importance of preventing pollution, to avoid the need to hand out fines.
