This program provides funding for Local Aboriginal Land Councils (LALCs) and other entities working in partnership with LALCs to manage illegal dumping on private land owned by Aboriginal communities.

Illegal dumping is an environmental crime and can cause serious environmental pollution, pose a risk to human health and impact local amenities and community pride. The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) acknowledges that the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people is related to the protection of the environment.

This program aims to:
reduce the impacts of illegal dumping on Aboriginal land through clean up and prevention activities
build and maintain collaborative approaches and partnerships to help manage and reduce the occurrence of illegal dumping
integrate deterrence, surveillance and monitoring measures and community education to prevent illegal dumping activities on Aboriginal land
incorporate cultural activities that enable Aboriginal people to care for Country, engage in knowledge sharing and gain skills and employment in land management.
