Cooma Cats Australian Rules football club are on the ball when it comes to litter reduction.
Earlier this year the club, in conjunction with Cooma-Monaro Shire Council, were successful
in obtaining a $5,000 grant from "Keep Australia Beautiful" under the community Litter
The grant money was used to construct bin enclosures that house both garbage and
recycling bins. Previously garbage was disposed of in large metal skips which were both
unsightly and attracted illegal dumping. The new bins now give ground users a recycling
option as well as garbage disposal.
Cooma Cats Club President Stuart Wood said "These community based projects are a
great way for our club to give something back to the community".
The Cooma-Monaro Shire Councils General Manager, Mr John Vucic said "This joint project
between Council and Cooma Cats shows how co-operation between council and sporting
groups can produce great outcomes for rate payers and ground users alike".
