DumpInData tracks and analyses litter and illegal dumping data

DumpInData is a free program for local councils, government agencies and other land managers to track and assess litter and illegal dumping in Victoria. 

Information is entered into a database – via a mobile app or website – and can then be aggregated, analysed and visualised for reporting purposes in a special online dashboard powered by Microsoft’s Power BI software.

DumpInData helps land managers to:

  • report on litter and illegal dumping on-site easily with the mobile app
  • evaluate illegal dumping programs and interventions efficiently
  • conduct cost benefit analyses into litter and illegal dumping programs
  • prepare business cases and grant applications to bid for funding and resources
  • download your data into a CSV spreadsheet at any time.

DumpInData is a tool for land managers and is not for the public to report illegal dumping.
