Residents of Moree Plains Shire have donated the equivalent of 128 meals via the MobileMuster’s mobile for a meal campaign.


For every mobile recycled in January and February, MobileMuster donated the value of a meal to OzHarvest, Australia's leading food rescue agency, to help 644,000 people who now receive food relief each month, of which, one third are children.


Council’s Waste Officer Tahra Sayers explained the aim of MobileMuster is to keep old mobiles and accessories out of landfill and ensure they are recycled safely, securely and ethically.


“Each of the 128 recycled mobiles from Moree Plains residents helped provide food relief for someone in need.”


“MobileMuster also recovers over 95% of the materials used in mobile phones and accessories, the data is destroyed and nothing is resold. MobileMuster’s mobile for a meal campaign is a win for those in need and the environment,” she said.


Old mobile phones can be left for MobileMuster at Council at its Customer Service Centres in Moree, Mungindi or Boggabilla.





It’s ‘Back to Business Week’, and Moree Plains Shire Council has partnered with Regional Development Australia Northern Inland (RDANI), local businesses and the Mungindi Progress Association to bring our local businesses three great free events.


‘Back to Business Week’ is a NSW Government initiative that runs from 22 February to 4 March 2017, aimed at celebrating small to medium sized business and supporting the vital role they play in local communities.


“Council has received a grant from the NSW Government to participate in the initiative by hosting and supporting key business events within the Shire.” Moree Plains Shire Council Economic and Community Development Manager Mark Connolly said.


“We have three events on offer; a Go Digital Business Workshop, a Moree Business Dinner Forum and a Mungindi Business Dinner Forum”.


For businesses looking to support their local operations by developing an online business, or those looking to build their online profile through social media and blogging, The Moree Go Digital workshop and ongoing training program will prove to be incredibly valuable.


“We received a wealth of feedback from our recent business surveys and a dominant theme amongst local retail businesses was a desire to know more about social media and online trading, so we are thrilled to have Go Digital here to get them started.”


The Moree and Mungindi Dinner Forums are a great opportunity to get together and network with local business people and hear about local success stories. These evenings will be emceed by local poet Murray Hartin and local guest speakers will tell their stories and share their experiences of being in business.
