Free dumping weekend labelled a success

Last month’s free dumping weekend has been called a success after more than 150 vehicles took advantage of the unlimited disposal of domestic waste.

Burdekin Shire Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said 169 vehicles entered the Kirknie Road Landfill gates on Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 November. This was a major increase from the usual 10 vehicles per weekend.

“The numbers show that this was an incredibly popular event amongst our residents,” Cr McLaughlin said.

“We recovered approximately eight tonnes of metal for recycling across the weekend. We also accepted 170 tyres, 14 mattresses and 14 non-degassed fridges. We will now shred the mattresses to recover even more metal for recycling, whilst the tyres will be taken away by an approved tyre recycler.”

Cr McLaughlin commended the community’s behaviour when attending the free dumping weekend, saying that the majority of ute loads were secured or covered, and that residents sorted all waste before dropping recyclable materials in the designated areas.

Whilst the free dumping weekend did mean that standard fees were lifted across the two days, the majority of sorted waste can be accepted at Council Waste Facilities free of charge all year round.

“Household waste which is sorted and placed in the relevant recycling area typically does not attract a disposal fee. Fee exempt waste includes items such as scrap metal, degassed white goods, batteries, household appliances, green waste and furniture.”

Customers can also take up to 6 litres of motor oil and 20 litres of cooking oil to Council’s Transfer Stations for free.

South Ayr Water Treatment Plant bypass pipeline on track for completion

The South Ayr Water Treatment Plant bypass pipeline project is on track for completion this month following the successful cut in of a section of pipeline into existing infrastructure last Wednesday 5 December.

Director of Infrastructure, Planning and Environmental Services Nick Wellwood said Council employees and local specialist contractors were on site between 8pm and 8am to carry out the critical works.

“Despite some threatening thunderstorms and overnight rain, our team was able to successfully connect the 450mm diameter bypass junction at the water facility. This was a key stage in our project and means we continue to be on track for completion by the end of the year,” Mr Wellwood said.

Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said construction had been scheduled at night to take advantage of lower overnight water demand, minimising the potential for loss of continuous supply.

“To allow the cut in to occur, the Ayr Water Treatment Plant was taken offline for approximately five hours which resulted in reduced water supply capacity to the townships of Ayr, Alva and Brandon,” Cr McLaughlin said.

“As a result of the community’s efforts to conserve water, I’m happy to report that we did not experience any loss of water supply during the overnight disconnection. This is a great result and I would like to thank the community for their cooperation.”

Council officers will now focus on the final stages on the project, which include final pipework connections and operational testing of the bypass system.

Once completed, the pipeline will allow water from Conlan Street bore field to bypass the existing water facility in South Ayr and directly connect to the town water supply.

Popular opera and musical theatre artists Tenori, wildly entertaining Peter Allen tribute performer Danny Elliott and classically trained musicians from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music are among the talented line-up for the Burdekin Theatre’s 2019 Morning Melodies season.

Burdekin Shire Council Cultural Venues Manager Chris Patrick revealed the stellar line up last Wednesday 5 December during the final Morning Melodies event for the year.

“Our 2019 Morning Melodies season features so many talented musicians. We hope the community gets behind it, as they have done this year,” Mr Patrick said.

Meanwhile, Mayor Lyn McLaughlin announced that Council will continue to support the Morning Melodies program by hosting a free event for residents in December.

“Looking back at past Morning Melodies seasons, it is pleasing to see crowds continue to increase,” Cr McLaughlin said.

“Each year Council has invited residents to celebrate the festive season with a free Christmas-themed Morning Melodies performance, which is always popular. I am happy to announce that Council will continue to support the program in 2019 with Silver Bells- a Buble Christmas,” Cr McLaughlin said.

The 2019 Morning Melodies season includes:

  • The Lounge Suite starring Dale Pengelly – 13 February
  • We’ve Only Just Begun starring Angela Lumicisi – 27 March
  • Tenterfield to Rio starring Danny Elliott – 5 June
  • Practically Perfect starring Karla Hillam –14 August
  • Timeless starring Tenori – 16 October
  • Silver Bells- a Buble Christmas – 4 December

The six-part season will move to an 11am timeslot next year, to align with all other venues on the Morning Melodies tour. The complimentary morning tea, which is generously donated by the Friends of the Burdekin Theatre, will be provided from 10am.

Tickets to all six Morning Melodies performances go on sale 14 January 2019.

Tickets will be available from the Burdekin Theatre’s website www.burdekintheatre.com.au, the Box Office, Council on (07) 4783 9800 or the Theatre on (07) 4783 9880.

Community Christmas Carols attract record crowds

Wet weather did not deter those in the festive spirit from attending the Community Christmas Carols, with record numbers attending the event.

Wet weather did not deter those in the festive spirit from attending the Community Christmas Carols last night, with record numbers attending the event.

Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said hundreds of residents flocked to the Burdekin Memorial Hall in Home Hill for an evening of local entertainment.

“It was wonderful to see so many community members come together and celebrate as one. People of all ages gathered, from the very young to the young at heart. It was lovely to see generations of families enjoying the carols,” she said.

Cr McLaughlin said Council had received lots of positive feedback regarding the choice of entertainment, especially headline act René Le Feuvre and emcee Reece D’Alessandro.

“René Le Feuvre was a crowd favourite, performing a mix of Christmas Carols and classic hits. Reece D’Alessandro did a brilliant job presenting the evening.

“Both René and Reece are two of the district’s favourite young sons. We appreciate they took time out of their schedules to return home during this busy time of the year.

“I’d also like to acknowledge the wonderful performances produced by countless locals. Last night, we had everything from musicians to gymnasts, local choirs and a dance school. These are the groups who really make any Community Christmas Carols come alive.”

The Burdekin Combined Chaplaincy Committee expressed their appreciation for the overwhelming generosity of the community, with the Chaplain’s Collection raising over $1,000.

The Burdekin and Home Hill Branch Libraries will be hubs of activity this December following the announcement of the Christmas school holiday activities program.

Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said with a number of free and affordable activities on offer, there’s something to keep everyone busy this festive season.

The program includes old favourites, such as Christmas-themed Storytime and a movie at Ideas@108, as well as plenty of new activities.

“What’s really exciting is that for the first time we’ve included two adult craft sessions in our holiday activities program, meaning there really is something for everyone at the libraries,” Cr McLaughlin.

The program begins with the free lantern making workshops this Friday 7 and Saturday 8 December.

Children are invited to join one of two drop-in sessions, where they can create their very own Christmas lantern. They are then invited to take part in the Children’s Lantern Parade during the Community Christmas Carols this Sunday in Home Hill.

“Our Christmas activities are always popular, so I encourage families to book early to avoid disappointment,” Cr McLaughlin said.

A new Christmas-themed Magical Park is waiting for you

Ayr’s Anzac Park will turn into a digital fantasy land these school holidays when the augmented reality game Magical Park returns to the Burdekin Shire.

Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said that after downloading the free Magical Park app on their smart phone or tablet, users could chase reindeer, battle Yetis and help Santa save Christmas during 5 December – 7 January 2019.

“Users will step into a blended virtual world seen through the app once they enter the boundaries of the magical park,” she said.

“A great safety feature of this game is that Magical Park only works within a confined area in the park, meaning that the game content disappears as the device holder reaches a pre-set boundary.”

It comes after Council introduced the game in two local parks last year.

Cr McLaughlin said Council hoped the game would get children outdoors and active these school holidays.

“The games are designed for children aged six to 11 and create an exciting and engaging world for them to explore.

“Council would love to see more children and families frequenting our parks. This is a wonderful way to encourage them to do that, giving kids open space to exercise and get outdoors while they enjoy the use of modern technology.”

Magical Park is free to download from the App Store and Google Play.

Burdekin Shire Council has contributed $30,000 to the Burdekin Combined Chaplaincy Committee in support of the school chaplaincy program.

School chaplains work with students, families and staff in the school community to discuss social, emotional, mental, physical and spiritual concerns.

The Burdekin Combined Chaplaincy currently provides four chaplains to work with students, parents, teachers and school staff at Ayr State School, Ayr State High School, East Ayr State School, Home Hill State School, Burdekin School and Home Hill State High School.

Mayor Lyn McLaughlin said school chaplains played a vital role in the community.

“On behalf of Council and the community, I thank the Burdekin Combined Chaplaincy for their presence and valuable work they do with the youth of the Burdekin,” she said.

“After speaking with some young people who have received support through this program, I can appreciate the influence of these dedicated chaplains and the change they inspire in students.

“The Burdekin is very fortunate to have such caring people who go over and above their school-based roles to assist young people deal with personal challenges.”

Burdekin Combined Chaplaincy chair Rhonda Williams said the funds would go toward the chaplains’ wages and school programs.

“We are so grateful to Burdekin Shire Council for this generous donation, which allows us to continue our level of support in the Burdekin,” she said.

“One of the activities we run as a direct result of this donation is the school holiday activity camp for kids (Shack) program in Home Hill during the June school holidays. This camp ran for four days and we had up to 50 kids per day this year, so it really was a successful program.

“With the help of this donation, we are able to sustain the high level of support we offer local youth, including our chaplain-run programs in local schools.”
