The city's landfills will be opened for free in December with Griffith City Council hosting their 'dump for free' weekend.
Dumping rubbish at the Tharbogang Waste Management Centre and Yenda Waste Management Centre will be free on December 4 and 5.
Mayor John Dal Broi said council spends in excess of $40,000 cleaning up waste from the roadside due to illegal dumping and the 'Dump for Free' weekends are one way to address the issue.
"The 'Dump for Free' day was an initiative of Council to address some of the illegal dumping throughout the LGA and to assist residents in the disposal of their Bulky Waste," Councillor Dal Broi said.
"The weekends have proven to be a massive success with close to 1200 residents using the Tharbogang and Yenda service during the same event held last year."
Councils waste operations manager John Roser said the 'dump for free' weekend would be held in line with COVID-19 restrictions.
Anyone experiencing symptoms is asked not to participate.
Residents will be able to dispose of two standard loads of rubbish, with a standard load defined as the equivalent of a ute/car and trailer combo, a ute or car load.
No asbestos will be accepted, and no more than four car tyres will be accepted, no commercial or agriculture tyres will be accepted.
Cr Dal Broi said the Community Recycling Centre can accept common household wastes which aren't dealt with by kerbside collections.
"Griffith and surrounds householders can drop off problem wastes at the Tharbogang Waste Management Facility all year round, free of charge - take advantage of this great service at any time and help your local environment.," he said.
The CRC accepts paint, gas bottles, fire extinguishers, motor oils, other oil, car and household batteries, smoke detectors and fluro globes/tubes. The CRC is open seven days per week from 8am to 5pm.
