Spring Scavenge at the Foreshore

Lakeside Scavenge is coming back to Jindabyne’s Banjo Paterson Park with Spring into Scavenge, another fun community clean-up and clothes swap event on Saturday 17 April from 9am to 1pm.

This will be the fourth event held in Jindabyne, with 353 residents across previous Lakeside Scavenge events removing over 2 tonnes of litter from the lake foreshore. In partnership with Snowy Monaro Regional Council, the NSW Government and The Festival of Place – Summer Fund, the event will feature live music and talks from local environmental groups including young entrepreneur and Founder of Keep it Cool Lucas Wilkison, Council’s Resource and Waste Education Officer Edwina Lowe and representatives from Sustainable Snowies.

“The Lakeside Scavenge is always a wonderful day out, and we’re very pleased to be welcoming the event back this year,” said Mayor Peter Beer, Snowy Monaro Regional Council.

“Initiatives like these are testament to the spirit of our community and I encourage residents across the Snowy Monaro to head to Jindabyne and pitch in to help keep our region a beautiful place to live, work and visit.”

The event is an empowering opportunity for participants to reconnect with their community and local environment as well as reconsider their relationship to waste. For every 10 pieces of litter collected, participants are rewarded with one Trash Token to use in a pop-up market of quality handpicked pre-loved clothes, books and toys.

All trash collected on the day is catalogued and captured for the Australian Marine Debris Database. Participants will walk away with knowledge on how to sort, separate and catalogue litter. All the rubbish removed will be disposed of by Alistair McKimm from Snowy Skips.

Prizes will be awarded to participants who collect the most litter, the most cigarette butts or the weirdest item, and more. Prizes have been kindly donated by local businesses who are eager to support local waste education including The Yoga Shala, CBD Cafe, Thredbo Resort and Jindabyne Brewery.

Registrations for the Jindabyne Spring into Scavenge are open now, find out more details by heading to the Seaside Scavenge website or Facebook events page and searching for Jindabyne Spring into Scavenge.
