Cantabrians dumping old furniture in parks are about to be named and shamed online.
Environment Canterbury rangers collected 62 tonnes of rubbish from regional parks last year - and forked out more than $150,000 to dispose of it.
But litterbugs will now be slapped with a $750 fine - and their face splashed online.
Parks and forests team leader James Page told Heather du Plessis-Allan people dump everything - including the kitchen sink - in parks.
"We're getting garden waste and all sorts of household waste, furniture and things like that, being dumped down in the parks as well."
He says the community has called for a crack-down.
"We're sort of coming at it both guns loaded in the theory that this is something the public has been quite vocal about us
doing something about."
