Getting the right stuff in your bins in the Tweed

Tweed Council is asking residents to be more careful with what waste they put in which bin – a surprising amount of the area's refuse, both recycling and landfill, ends up in the wrong receptacle.

The Kyogle Reconciliation Group would like to congratulate Kyogle Council and Guggin Guddaba Land Council for the amazing renewal of Aunty Patsy’s artwork on the WK (Bill) Grove Pedestrian Way.

It’s so refreshing to walk out to Geneva or the skate park and see the fantastic mix of old and new imagery together.

Special thanks to Michael Davis and Steven Byers for bringing the walls alive again and a huge shout out to the teachers and staff at Kyogle High, Kyogle Primary and St Brigid’s for allowing their students to participate and place their hand prints and become a part of Kyogle’s history and future.

What a fun thing for the local kids to be able to place their hands back on the print in a few months or even years’ time and see how much their young hands have grown.

Thanks to the Kyogle community and participating members of the reconciliation group who came along to lend a hand as well.

Muranda, for Kyogle Reconciliation Group
