Waste to Art Competition

Waste to Art is an exciting community art competition and exhibition showcasing reused and recyclable waste materials. This innovative challenge invites schools, community groups and individuals to transform rubbish into art and design.

What better way to reuse materials than to turn them into art! All entries will be shown in the exhibition, which will be a star attraction in each of our towns.

The competition and exhibition complement our focus on managing waste better in our Council area. An important part of this is the Council-wide introduction of organics waste collection (FOGO) and recycling collection for Jerilderie residents.

Prizemoney of $200 will be awarded for 1st place in each category. A People's Choice Award of $100 will be made at the end of the Jerilderie exhibition.
