Cruelty to Animals

Illegal Camping

There is no free camping within the Shire. To 'camp' also includes sleeping in a vehicle. 

Short term 72 hour RV-Friendly parking is also available in Kojonup. The parking area is situated on Gordon Street and is a well frequented overnight stop for self-contained RVs. 

It is also recommended you contact the Kojonup Visitor Centre for more information on accommodation within the Shire.

Litter

Rangers rely on the community to assist in identifying offenders of illegal dumping of rubbish and materials. Rangers check for illegal dumping of rubbish during regular patrols and vehicles and trailers en-route to waste disposal sites and the bushland are targeted for insecure loads or illegal dumping activities.

Litter can take many forms:

  • Rubbish thrown from a moving vehicle or by pedestrians
  • Building rubbish, household rubbish or green waste placed on street verges or in bushland
  • Improperly disposing of used syringes
  • Abandoned vehicles

Please call the Shire office on 9831 2400 or email council@kojonup.wa.gov.au to report any litter complaints.

Vehicle Control

Abandoned Motor Vehicles

Abandoned vehicles can create hazards for motorists. Prompt removal is often required and the ranger works closely with Main Roads and local police to ensure this is carried out. Vehicle owners will be traced and contacted whenever possible and arrange towing and/or impounding and disposal of abandoned vehicles.

Parking

Unlawful parking practices cause considerable inconvenience and in some cases create dangerous situations. The issuing of Parking Infringement Notices is sometimes the only way of ensuring compliance with the restrictions. The ranger regular patrols special parking bays set aside for disabled persons.
