To help clean up sporting fields and bush areas around the fields, Shoalhaven City Council has launched an educational campaign offering sporting clubs across the Shoalhaven, the opportunity to participate in the Report Illegal Dumping (RID) Community Champions program.
RID Community Champions is an innovative educational program pioneered by Council Rangers that aims to prevent illegal rubbish dumping by motivating and educating the community at a grassroots level.
Applications have now closed and the process of selecting the sporting clubs to participate in the six week program has commenced.
The three clubs selected to be part of the program will be announced on Monday 17 October 2016.
The three clubs have from 22 October 2016 until 11 December 2016 to carry out their Report Illegal Dumping Community Champions campaigns.
The club with the most effective campaign will be announced on 13 December 2016 and rewarded with items/equipment to the value of $5000! The two runner up clubs will each receive items/equipment to the value of $2500.
