Brigg residents who see incidents of fly-tipping are being urged to report them to the authorities.
The call came from Coun Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, during Brigg Town Council's March meeting.
His comments came as the council was considering correspondence about the long-standing problem of fly-tipping near the railway station.
The correspondence came from the campaign supporting greater use of Brigg Line passenger trains which run on Saturdays.
It was suggested a CCTV camera had been removed from the Hewson House offices, on Station Road.
Coun Carl Sherwood, who is a member of the Cabinet at North Lincolnshire Council, said there was a camera close to Wetherspoon's pub so it could look along Wrawby Street.
Coun Waltham said there would always be "bad people" who chose to break the law and he called on members of the public to report the culprits.
He pointed out that a CCTV camera on Hewson House could not see "the whole area" near the railway station.
Coun Mike Campion sought assurances that the results of any fly-tipping would be removed quickly.
NF ADDS: Fly-tipping can be reported to Humberside Police (call 101) and to North Lincolnshire Council.
