This week is your last chance to turn trash into something trendy and win an awesome prize.
Burdekin residents have until this Friday to get their entries into the Trash is Trendy competition.
All you need to do is create a wearable piece of clothing – hat, fascinator, jewellery, handbag, dress, skirt – out of items that would normally be placed in your yellow-lidded recycle bin.
Get creating and bring your entries into the Burdekin Shire Council’s office in Young Street, Ayr. All entries will be displayed and the winners announced at the Home Hill Harvest Festival Mardi Gras on November 8.
There are some great prizes up for grabs, including $100 cash, family passes to Reef HQ or Billabong Sanctuary.
Trash is Trendy is being held as part of National Recycling Week.
