Please!

If you use the Return and Earn Reverse Vending Machine at the Cavanbah Centre take leftover boxes, bags and containers with you.

This is how it looked after the weekend which is disappointing.
Return and Earn is a NSW State Government litter REDUCTION initiative. Let’s not create more.

The skips on site are for cleaner use only, and the two wheelie bins are provided to collect small amounts of customer waste.

Council will be monitoring the area and issuing fines for illegal dumping at or near the site.

For more information about Return and Earn go to returnandearn.org.au

We went on Saturday and it wasn’t like this at all. Infact I thought it was very tidy compared to usual. Must have happened late Saturday and Sunday - very quick for that amount of excess cardboard and recycling

I wonder if the council would use this area as a recycling centre for the community for class , cardboard and plastic bags as the signs on those skips say ! Maybe our council needs to be more progressive in recycling for the community that you were voted in by !

Perhaps some of this waste is being created by visitors to town who use the bottle bank on the way out of town / home. They may not be able to take their boxes with them or may not know they aren’t allowed to use the bins provided. We’re not going to get fewer visitors so maybe we need to accommodate their needs?

From experience with an op shop - we get sooooo much GARBAGE that is not usable - just that people dump. One would think if an item were broken or soiled or smelly, and they wouldn't use it, then why should someone else?

The bin that’s says cardboard is filled with cardboard???? I don’t think locals or visitors go all the way out to drop off cardboard. Maybe council should empty more regularly. I see homeless people going thru bins to collect bottles etc . Maybe they use cardboard boxes to transport these bottles ???

Beyond comprehension 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️ just put boxes back in the car and reuse wtafk is the matter with ppl

How about instead of telling people to take boxes home, you put another recycle bin there to put them in

this happened in Mullum too. No more skip bins now

Ballina lost theres due to this crap -sad how lazy people can ruin it for everyone!

Never happened, when Richmond Waste serviced them, Maybe the big multi national, who thinks they can do it better, actually can’t?

More bins.!!

That's a disgrace! What is wrong with some people??

Only a few weeks now until we unveil the new and improved Railway Park!

Here is a sneak peak from the other side of the fence.

We look forward to officially opening the park for community use from Saturday November 2.

Details to come!

The playground looks AMAZING from the glimpses I’ve seen🌈

Looks great!

So welcoming. Reminds of the my childhood days playing in the park during the 60s and 70s.

looking good!

Seriously I want to complain about this but can’t find a valid reason!! This is Facebook, what are you doing to us, BSC!

Too much parking fee money.

Looks good. However I do fear that Byron will soon look like Noosa.

Looks fab. Can't wait to take a walk through.

Too much concrete

We are pretty excited about our new animal enforcement truck!

You’ll see our team out and about in it starting this week.

The truck allows us to safely pick up animals, using an ergonomically friendly lift system.

It is fully ventilated and has improved hygiene measures.

The truck is able to fit a maximum of 5 animals at any time and has the ability to separate cats from dogs.

If you see us out and about – say hello!

Lease monitor Lillipilli area. The cats are killing our wildlife

Hope he gets down to the land beyond the surf club carpark at Bruns...

Pity they don't have one for the two legged ones who roam and deface our town.

When are you going to do something about all the off leash dogs that are all over the place?

Where will all those animals be taken?

and the potholes what about them

Is this another attempt to kill MORE animals ?

More heavy patching work completed this week.

The front of The Pocket School, and the intersection at Myocum Rd/Coolamon Scenic Drive near Mullumbimby.

Every little bit counts!

Thank you! Made a huge difference!

Myocum Coolamon intersection is awesome. Well done!

Road at Durrumbul school and preschool needs repair..... atrocious.

There was a white line along there but it was too narrow for cycling. As you have resealed will you take the opportunity to add a safe edge for one cycle, in line with the Shire draft Cycling Plan ?

Thank you

Fix them properly
