METRO Trains has admitted CCTV cameras installed to capture illegal rubbish dumping at Huntingdale Railway Station have been removed as issues at the station continue.
In recent weeks, dumping has continued at the station while cameras have been removed for footage review.
It comes despite authorities still being unsure who is able to fine people caught on camera dumping rubbish.
Rubbish has been dumped at the site for years, and the pile grew to be about 50m in length after items were dumped in the railway station's gravel carpark over the Christmas and New Year period.
Metro spokeswoman Larisa Tait said the cameras had been removed "temporarily", but did not answer questions about when they were removed or when they would return.
Ms Tait said Metro was evaluating whether the cameras would be an effective long-term deterrent for dumpers.
Monash Mayor Micaela Drieberg was "disgusted" that hard rubbish issues continued at the station following a public campaign to address the problem.
"When Metro Trains recently picked up some rubbish, there were 15 bed mattresses in their haul," Cr Drieberg said.
"That is a revolting statistic, and it only makes Metro Trains and council more determined to fix the problem."
She said the council would work with Metro to figure out who could issue fines.
