Park Beach cleans up
THE Park Beach Community Group has gained a $5000 grant from Keep Australia Beautiful to buy and install recycling bins at beach access points in the suburb.
The grant is from Keep Australia Beautiful’s Beverage Container Recycling project, which is financially supported by the Coca-Cola Foundation.
Park Beach Community Group president Jenny Grant said the containers would be located beside the beach pathways through the dunes where people going to and from the beach could leave their cans and bottles.
She said they would be placed well away from the street so people were not tempted to use them for household rubbish.
The Park Beach Community Group is now looking for a project manager to research and buy the recycling receptacles, liaise with Coffs Harbour City Council and Waste Services; consult with stakeholders about locations and arrange installation and signs to acknowledge the grant.
The next meeting of the Park Beach Community group will be held from 4-5pm on Sunday at Park Beach Bowling Club and all Park Beach residents interested in improving life in their suburb are urged to attend.
