Win Free Green Waste For A Year

Buloke Shire Council knows that there’s some proud lawn producers out there, who regularly post their neatly manicured fescue to social media as a salute to the great Aussie backyard, and maybe for a bit of attention.

However, with this unseasonal wet weather, the before and after photos are going to be that much more brilliant, this year.

Council would like to honour two of our citizens with a trophy for ‘Buloke’s Best Lawn’ and ‘Buloke’s Best Before and After Residential Yard’ in a photo competition, to be presented at Council’s Australia Day Celebrations in 2023.

The two winners will also receive a one-year-pass to their nearest landfill, providing for one cubic metre of green waste free-of-charge, each week.

Whether you are the sort that’s out there with the scissors keeping the green tufts flat like a deck, or you are going to make a last-minute dash to tidy up the place – everyone’s in with a chance.

We can’t think of a better way to work together as a community to reduce the influx of mozzies and beat the bite.

As soon as the sun peaks through the clouds - let’s get those mowers purring. One entry is permitted per household, however you can enter both categories:

  • Best residential lawn photo competition; and
  • Best before and after residential yard photo competition.

Council promotes inclusivity and access for all abilities, therefore entries will be accepted if the maintenance at the property is performed by a contractor.

Contact Council before Friday December 9, for a copy of the application form to be posted out to you, to ensure you will be able to submit the application before the competition closes. Call Customer Service on 1300 520 520.

The photo competition opens Friday 2 December, 2022 and closes at 5pm 16 December, 2022.
