Weekend Warriors Clean Up Graffiti

Join the fight against graffiti and become a Graffiti Warrior to make a real difference to the appearance of our local community – Let’s Love Where We Live by taking part in Graffiti Removal Day on Sunday 21 October 2018.

Along with the Graffiti Warriors, Moree Plains Shire Council will join forces with the NSW Government, Rotary Down Under, Scouts Australia NSW, Girl Guides NSW & ACT and the Australian Air Force Cadets and sponsors – Dulux, Selleys and Graffiti Removal Australia to run the campaign to highlight the problem of graffiti vandalism and encourage people to get involved in the removal and prevention of graffiti.

Event organiser, Council’s Environment and Compliance Manager Dane Graham said Graffiti Removal Day provides a great opportunity for individuals, community groups, sporting clubs, businesses and other organisations to join the fight against graffiti and make a real difference to the appearance of our local community.

Meet at the Moree Tourist Information Centre on Sunday, 21 October 2018 at 8.45am for 9am start.  Anyone over the age of 12 with the ability to clean off graffiti can volunteer to participate in Graffiti Removal Day. Afterward, volunteers will enjoy a barbeque lunch.

“All the volunteers will be provided with training, graffiti removal equipment and protective gear, and afterward, we get together to admire our work and have a barbeque lunch,” he said.

Graffiti is a serious problem across New South Wales and costs communities millions of dollars each year.

Governments, businesses and volunteer organisations are doing their bit, however we need your help in the fight against graffiti.

People can register or suggest a clean-up site by completing a form at www.graffitiremovalday.org.au or contacting Council on 6757 3245.



National Garage Sale Trail - Powered by Council 

Moree Plains Shire Council is pleased to announce it is hosting a giant community garage sale this year on Saturday 20 October at Jellicoe Park, in participation with the National Garage Sale Trail campaign.

Garage Sale Trail 3 weeks to goCouncil’s Waste Support Officer Dayna Kross explained the Garage Sale Trail is Australia’s biggest community and sustainability event which helps people to think about how we can all take responsibility for the waste we create and ensure useable items don’t end up in landfill.

“Residents are more conscious about waste and understand their role in reducing it, so supporting the Garage Sale Trail is a simple way to bring communities together, reuse and rethink the idea of what waste really is.”

“The best thing is it is free to be part of the Trail and you get to keep all the proceeds! So declutter and make some money by hosting a stall at the Second-Hand Market and Car-Boot Sale,” she said.

Anyone can be part of the Garage Sale Trail campaign and once you register, there is free advertising and help through http://www.garagesaletrail.com.au/sale/1366.

Households, community groups, schools, charities and even community-minded local businesses are welcome to setup a stall at the second-hand market and car-boot sale and sell unwanted items and equipment from the boot of a vehicle, back of a truck or trailer or a marquee stall setup at Jellicoe Park.

To follow the trail and grab a bargain, you can subscribe to the website and get updates or search the local area sales.

The initiative is run by Australian not-for-profit Garage Sale Trail Foundation. The event exists to create positive social and environmental change in communities across Australia.
