Council has handed out a $2000 fine for illegal dumping after a load of rubbish was found near Menindee Road on the town common.
Council announced on Monday that Rangers would be targeting problem sites around the city where dumping is regularly occurring, and also focusing on general littering from cars as part of the NSW Government's Litter Enforcement Month.
A member of the public contacted Council regarding a dumping incident this week, and Rangers immediately attended the site.
"Our Rangers followed up on that information, a culprit was identified, and a $2000 fine was handed out," said Council's Manager Planning, Development and Compliance, Francois Van Der Berg.
"The person in question was quite remorseful and went back and removed the rubbish, but again we'd like to remind people to make use of the rubbish tip.
"Trashing our outback and attracting big fines just isn't worth it. We really stress that locals should use the waste facilities that Council provides."
Mr Van Der Berg urged any locals that witness illegal dumping to contact Council immediately on 8080 3300.
"Community assistance is so valuable for us to be able crack down on illegal dumping," he said.
"It's an issue that the whole community feels pretty strongly about, so if residents see anything we'd encourage them to give us a call so we can take action."
