At this year's Expo, you have the opportunity to swap those unwanted good condition items for something new and fun!  Snowy River Youth Group are partnering with the Jindabyne “Op Shop” to host a swap meet and pop-up photo booth.

Bring down items such as toys, clothes and books that are in good condition to swap one for one with specialty items from the “Op Shop” selected by Snowy River Youth to display on the day.

While you are there, why not dress up, slap on a hat, a funky outfit or a pair heels and get your photo taken in the pop-up photo booth. Have fun with the Snowy River Youth and share your photos on Instagram with the hashtags #oursnowymonaro #rrrexpo.

Hashtag photos will be displayed on Council’s Resource and Waste Webpage and there will be giveaways on the day for participants.

The 3 R's - Reduce, Reuse,Recycle 

 These all help to cut down on the amount of waste we throw away. They conserve natural resources, landfill space and energy. Plus, the 3 R's save land and money communities must use to dispose of waste in landfills.

Council would like to invite the community to participate and get involved in this year's Resource and Waste Expo following the theme Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
