Council is urging locals to make use of the city's free Waste Management Facility after an increase in illegal dumping.
Rangers have reported a 'significant' increase in dumping over the past 12 months on the city's outskirts, with much of the waste being green waste and household waste.
Council's Environment, Waste and Recycling Specialist, Libby Guest, said the increase may be due to misunderstanding over the role of the weighbridge, which was installed at the tip in 2015.
"I think when the weighbridge went in some people just assumed that there must be a charge to use the tip, but that's not the case," said Libby.
"It's free to dump household waste, green waste, and recyclables at the tip, the only time householders would have to pay a fee is if they bring in tyres, or contaminated waste such as asbestos.
"The majority of fees and charges primarily apply for commercial and industrial waste, not for household waste.
"Illegal dumping attracts an immediate $2,000 on the spot fine. It just makes no sense to risk that money and litter our countryside when the tip is free."
Council's Rangers will be targeting problem sites around the city where dumping is regularly occurring, and also focusing on general littering from cars as part of Litter Enforcement Month.
Litter Enforcement Month is a NSW Government initiative that runs from 19 March to 15 April, in conjunction with the Government's 'Hey Tosser!' litter education and awareness campaign.
Littering from cars can attract fines of $250 for individuals, and $500 for corporations.
Residents can register with the NSW Environment Protection Agency to 'Report a Tosser' for littering from their vehicle.
