Take your trash – keep our rivers clean

Berrigan Shire Council is targeting litter reduction in 2020 and you can be part of the solution. “Don’t be a Tosser!” It’s a simple message, but many people make excuses to justify their littering behaviour. This summer, you may be enjoying an icecream, a cold drink or having a picnic with family and friends by the Murray River. Please think about your rubbish and put it in the bin.

We are working to reduce litter in 2020 by stepping up litter enforcement patrols at recreation reserves and other high use areas. We are increasing signage to help you dispose of rubbish properly, so it doesn’t end up in our Rivers and waterways.

Berrigan Shire Council is a member of the Riverina and Murray Joint Organisation (RAMJO) Murray Waste Group which received funding from the NSW EPA ‘Waste Less, Recycle More’ initiative funded from the waste levy to reduce litter entering the Murray River.

You are encouraged to report littering by registering with the Report to EPA website and sharing the message “Don’t be a tosser!”. For more information on this project please follow Berrigan Shire Council on Facebook.
