Council Supports Show and Shine

Moree Plains Shire Council is supporting the Moree Motor Enthusiast Club with a $1600 contribution towards the cost of hosting the Moree Show and Shine Motor Expo on 2 September 2018 at Jellicoe Park, Moree.

The Moree Show and Shine Motor Expo runs in conjunction with the Father’s Day Jellicoe Park Markets, renowned to be the biggest markets for the year with enthusiasts travelling from Sydney and interstate, and thousands of people anticipated to visit from around the north-west.

Moree MarketsLocal and visiting exhibitors display everything from vintage vehicles to hot rods, motorcycles, mud bombs, trucks, tractors, motorbikes and sometimes, even planes.

President of the Moree Motor Enthusiast Club Sonia Rowe said “the event continues to grow each year and is a great way to spend Father’s Day morning. This year, we are very excited to host the Newcastle Enthusiasts who are displaying JAG vehicles.”

“We thank Council for its donation which we have used to positively promote the Moree Plains area and the Show and Shine Expo through social media and television. We hope this coverage will bring an influx of people into the area helping local business in difficult times.

“We would also like to thank the local businesses for their contributions of dealer and trade displays at the event, making it a great all round day of displays and attractions for everybody,” said Sonia.

To showcase your vehicle at the Show and Shine Motor Expo, contact the Moree Motor Enthusiast Club on 0439 621 225.

New App Helps You With Bin Collections

How many times have you stood on the street checking which coloured bins your neighbours have put out for collection?

Download the MPSC Waste AppMoree Plains Shire Council has developed an App – 'MPSC WASTE' – which gives Users a personalised bin collection calendar, custom pick-up reminders, an extensive A-Z recycling guide, plus tips for reducing waste and better recycling.

Acting Waste Manager Tahra Sayers said “The MPSC WASTE App is a great tool that helps residents identify which coloured bin should be out for collection, prompts Users about kerbside waste and recycling initiatives and provides an easy way of notifying Council of missed services or bin issues.”

“To get personalised reminders and tailored messages about waste service, Users should ensure notifications are checked on when they download the App.”

“It’s all about getting the right day, right bin and the right waste so our resource recovery programs and services are effective, contamination is reduced, and waste to landfill is minimised” said Mrs Sayers.

MPSC WASTE can be downloaded free from the App Store for iPhone or Google play for Android.

App features include:
• Personalised bin collection calendar with optional bin day reminders
• Quick guide to your kitchen bin, our three bin system, and an A-Z list of materials and how to dispose of them
• Forms to request an additional bin, notify Council of a missed service and more
• Information about Council’s services and waste facilities, including maps and directions
• Notifications to find out the latest waste information from Council

For households without access to a smartphone or tablet, there is a similar feature  Waste Services Guide booklet and collection calendar.
