Local Government Area Litter Audit


KABV’s Local Government Area Litter Audit is a benchmarking tool designed specifically for councils to provide robust litter data and inform litter prevention strategies.

Councils receive litter data that enables more informed decisions to change behaviour and meet circular economy objectives in communities such as:

  • Developing strategies and policies around litter.
  • Analysing the effects of infrastructure placement.
  • Development of site or area-specific budgets and plans.
  • Measuring the impact of campaigns targeting litter.
  • Engaging with local businesses and residents to offer ideas and resources around waste reform.
  • Understanding and learning what brands are creating litter in your area.

*KABV Council Members receive 10% off the rate of an audit. Click here to see the full list of council membership benefits.


  • Audit and litter collection of 16 co-selected sites within your Local Government Area, twice per year.
  • Reliable and accurate litter data collected by industry leaders McGregor Tan Research.
  • Clear results from each litter count in a dashboard format that can be accessed using Tableau, with a Tableau license issued to each Council. This will allow easy analysis and visualisation of data and the measurement of the effectiveness of behaviour change campaigns.
  • A written annual report.
  • A walkthrough session of the annual results (if required).
  • Benchmarking and comparison against other LGA’s if required and agreed by other LGA’s in the way of a conference or workshop.
