Operation Miller

Operation Miller Illegal dumping offenders should be on edge, now more than ever, with Council and the Sydney Regional Illegal Dumping (RID) Squad joining forces to fine those caught doing the wrong thing. No  

‚ÄčIllegal dumping offenders should be on edge, now more than ever, with Council and the Sydney Regional Illegal Dumping (RID) Squad joining forces to fine those caught doing the wrong thing.

Council and the RID Squad will be enforcing strict laws relating to illegal dumping, to ensure wrongdoers pay heavy penalties for potentially harming human health and the environment, as well as deterring dumpers from repeating the offence.

Over the next month, Operation Miller will be aimed at educating residents on how to report the issue, as well as targeting those dumping waste along Miller Road, Chester Hill.

Throughout the blitz, pamphlets will be distributed to residents, while signs and banners will be displayed. There will also be a number of random and regular high-profile patrols from Council officers and RID Squad investigators.

City of Canterbury Bankstown Mayor, Khal Asfour, warned there would be consequences.

"Enough is enough. We will be using state of art technology including number plate recognition cameras," Mayor Asfour said.

"This operation can catch you anywhere at anytime of the day or night."

Mayor Asfour said it was unfortunate Miller Road was a hotspot.

"There have been about five incidents at this location in the past month, which is unacceptable," Mayor Asfour said.

"Our City has a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to illegal dumping, especially when it can put the health and safety of our residents and environment at risk."

If caught, individuals will face fines up to $4,000 and $8,000 for corporations.

However, Council has recently called on the NSW Government to review the existing statewide fines and penalties, which can be imposed on individuals and organisations.

"Dumpers are becoming complacent over the fines, so why not see how brazen they are if they are increased?" Mayor Asfour said.

Each year, Council is forced to remove 2,500 tonnes of rubbish.

Since the beginning of the 2017-18 financial year, the Sydney RID Squad and Council have issued more than $100,000 in fines.

Operation Miller will run for the next three weeks.
