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.

I found a Hero Go-Pro camera in the surf last week at South Golden Beach.

I got the camera opened and charged its battery to find pictures of a surfer girl who had obviously lost the camera from the attachment on her board.

The camera was lost on 9 January 2012 and has been in the surf for two-and-a-half years.

I have attached the photo of her taking off on a wave at north wall Brunswick Heads. After this shot there are lots of shots of sand and water.

I’m hoping Echonetdaily might be able to help find this young woman so I can return her camera.
