Moree Cemetery Public Consultation Meetings

Moree Plains Shire Council is preparing a Master Plan for the existing Moree Cemetery with a proposed extension on a greenfield site located south of the existing cemetery, bounded by the Mehi River (to the site’s south), and rural residential developments (east and west).

Members of the public are invited to drop into one of the community consultation meetings week on 14-15 June 2018, to comment on the current use of the Moree Cemetery and provide suggestions for its future development.

You can come at any time during the drop-in sessions to talk to the consultants at the Moree Community Library meeting room (upstairs):

Thursday, 14 June 2018

Anytime between 3pm-6pm Community Consultation

Friday, 15 June 2018

Anytime between 11am-2pm Community Consultation

Members of the public are encouraged to complete the survey before it closes at Midnight on Monday 18 June 2018.




Library Helps Kids Get Into Recycling

Storytime at the Moree Community Library and Mungindi Library will have a different focus this month with the guest narrator from Cleanaway delivering their  kNOw Waste™ Education Program.

Parents and preschoolers will learn about the different materials that can be recycled in the yellow-lid wheelie bin; how waste is collected, what happens to it; and how children can Reduce, Reuse and Recycle waste at home.

The ‘Binwise’ storytime will teach children about sustainable waste management practices through interactive games, songs and a story.

Moree Community Library Coordinator Samantha Geatches said community waste is everyone’s problem, so at the Library we want to encourage our youngest members to recycle properly to prevent contaminants from such material entering the environment.

“We hope children who participated in the program will share their learning experiences with their family, relatives and friends, and together we can ensure a cleaner, greener environment for us and future generations.”

“We are also encouraging people to bring in their household batteries, mobile phones, e-Waste and printer cartridges to the Moree Community Library’s Recycling Station.”

The Library’s recycling drop-off initiative complements the existing Community Recycling Centre at the Moree Waste Management Facility, which opened in August last year.

“Libraries have always had a key role to play in environmental sustainability through their borrow, read and return practices with books, so programs like kNOw Waste™ Education Program is just an extension of the Library’s capacity be environmentally friendly,” commented Ms Geatches.

The special ‘Binwise” storytime with Cleanaway will run at 10.30am, 19 June 2018 at the Moree Community Library and 10.30am on 26 June 2018 at the Mungindi Library.
