Dumfries and Galloway Council is urging people to use its household waste recycling centres rather than driving "miles out into the countryside" to fly-tip their rubbish.
Fly-tipping is the illegal dumping of rubbish onto land that isn’t supposed to be used for that purpose.
It is becoming an increasing problem in the area and the council is appealing for people to use one of its twelve centres located in the region instead.
