A Kingsgrove man has been fined for illegally dumping car parts, including a motor, in bushland in the Royal National Park last month.

Mayor of the City of Canterbury Bankstown, Khal Asfour, said the bust was carried out by the Sydney Regional Illegal Dumping (RID) Squad.

"After some good detective work, they found the owner of the vehicle the motor was removed from," he said.

"The Hurstville man told investigators that he had given the car, which was a wreck, to the Kingsgrove man to use for parts.

"RID officers later found the body of the vehicle on the Kingsgrove man's property and he was forced to go back to where he dumped the parts, remove them and dispose of them correctly."

Mayor Asfour said the 28-year-old is now $2,000 the poorer after being slugged with a fine."I am proud that the Sydney RID Squad is based in Bankstown and is regularly busting people who don't do the right thing in disposing of materials," he said.

"CBCity has taken a hard stance on illegal dumping and we make no apologies for penalising those who dump waste unlawfully."

So far this year, there have been more than 3,102 incidents of illegal dumping investigated by the Sydney RID squad, across eight council areas, which has amounted to more than $75,000 in fines and 391 clean-up notices being issued.

The Sydney RID squad is a joint initiative between City of Canterbury Bankstown, and Bayside, Georges River, Randwick, Strathfield, Sutherland and Waverley Councils, and the Environmental Protection Authority.

There have also been 4,758 dumps investigated this year as part of Council's #EyesOnIt anti-dumping campaign.

Local residents are urged to call Council on 9707 9000, to report instances of illegal dumping of household items in CBCity, or the Sydney RID squad on 131 555, for any commercial waste dumpings.
