Winners and Wrap Up for 2017 3 R's Resource and Waste Expo!
This year’s Resource and Waste Expo held on Saturday 25 February 2017 was a great success and Council wishes to thank the community and everyone who participated for their support.
This annual event was first delivered to the Snowy River community 6 years ago and has grown every year since. The Expo provided fantastic exhibitions, performances and displays at the Jindabyne Memorial Hall and successful onsite facility tours in Cooma. The Expo saw record numbers through the door by 12noon.
There was a large emphasis in supporting the region's community groups at this year's 3 R's Expo. The CWA Jindabyne branch hosted a pop up café, the Jindabyne Op Shop had a stall while supporting the Snowy River Youth Group's swap meet, the Jindabyne Community Garden was there and many local exhibitors showcasing their innovative ideas on how to Reduce Reuse and Recycle.
There were many giveaways and prizes during the event from the exhibitors and Council competitions.
