Littering is an offence
Throwing or dropping litter, even unintentionally, is an offence under the Litter Act 1979. Dumping rubbish of any kind on any land not specified as a waste facility is also considered littering and attracts the same penalties under the Litter Act.
People in Western Australia can help call litterers to account by reporting littering or dumping of matter from a vehicle once registered with the Litter Reporter Scheme.
