Fined $2,000 after dumping car parts

A KINGSGROVE man is $2,000 poorer and has been forced to clean up a mess he left in the Royal National Park last month.

The 28-year-old man was fined for illegally dumping car parts, including a motor, in bushland in the park.
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.
A 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. He also received a $2,000 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,” the Mayor 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.
