A large amount of rubbish illegally dumped in Old Barmah Rd last week contained asbestos.
Murray Shire staff have undertaken safe removal procedures, the cost of which is borne by ratepayers.
The rubbish was removed in the early morning to limit disruption of traffic.
A Murray Shire spokesperson said the cost would exceed $3000.
‘‘It is a pretty low act to simply leave this dangerous material in the middle of the night and expect others to clean up,’’ he said.
The large rubbish load was left in the middle of the road, presenting both an eyesore and a danger to vehicles.
Anyone with information about the illegal dumping should contact Murray Shire on 5884
