Illegal dumpers have been busted over two large dumps in the Maitland area, after they were caught on camera.

The first incident saw a clothes dryer, microwave and general household waste dumped.

The second involved two clothes dryers, a washing machine and stove.

Two offenders were fined $6,000 and have been ordered to clean up the mess at their own cost.

"Identifying these offenders sends a clear message to illegal dumpers that the community will not tolerate their city being made into an eyesore," Maitland Council's David Simm said.

"The irony of these two incidents is that most of the material chosen to be illegally dumped was metal and could have been disposed of at the Mt Vincent Waste Management Centre for free."
