At EPA Victoria scientific processes and research underpins all the work we do. Every day, around the state, EPA’s authorised officers and environmental scientists are out in the field, investigating reports of pollution and monitoring the health of our environment.
EPA’s public litter reporting service was the first of its kind in Australia, established in 2002. It enables members of the public to report people who throw litter from a Victorian-registered motor vehicle to EPA. The cost of litter has an impact on every Victorian – the annual cleanup bill costs the community around $80 million.
