RADF helps arts projects soar


The beautifully illustrated story of Talon the osprey chick is now on display to all Osprey House Environmental Centre visitors, thanks to the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF).
The fund enabled Osprey House Environmental Centre to engage local artist Pip Grant-Taylor to work with centre volunteers on the story of Talons hatching and first flight. RADF grants can be used for a wide range of arts development activities including professional development; workshops; innovative arts, culture or heritage projects; concept development; creative industries development and cultural tourism initiatives. Applications for the next RADF funding round are now open and will close on 14 March, for projects starting after 30 May, 2011. Find out how to apply by visiting councils website at www.moretonbay.qld.gov.au/ radf The website contains guidelines, an eligibility check list and application forms. There are no upper or lower limits on grant applications, but typically grants range between $250 to more than $15,000 per project and average about $5,000.

Help build a vision for Moreton Bay region and be in the running to win a $5,000 travel voucher.
In the next edition of Moreton Living, council will be launching the Our Tomorrow Community Survey. Complete this survey online and you will

go into the draw for the fantastic t ravel p rize, while also helping to shape the regions future with your contribution. Council will use the views and opinions collected during the survey period to develop a community plan that reflects your values and what you like about where you live.

Spanning 10 years, the community plan will describe a vision for the future of the region in areas such as the environment, economy and community wellbeing. The community plan will then guide councils service delivery into the future. The information collected from the survey will provide

council with valuable feedback on what is important to local residents. The survey will also provide an opportunity for people to describe their vision for the Moreton Bay Region. So look out for more details and the survey in the next Moreton Living and help create Our Tomorrow.

Declutter this Summer


If a fresh clean start is on your New Years resolution list, then here are a few tips on how to dispose of clutter in a way that reduces its environmental impact.

Where can I take my rubbish?

1. Recycle
Glass, plastic bottles and containers, milk and juice containers made of liquid paperboard, paper, cardboard, aluminium and steel cans can all go into the yellowlidded recycling bin at home or at council waste facilities. Cardboard skip bins are located at all waste facilities. Metal products and e-waste like computers, old televisions, phones and printers can be recycled by delivering to the appropriate area at waste facilities.

There are four main waste facilities in Moreton Bay region open seven days a week between 7am and 6pm in summer. Each facility offers a range of options for waste disposal. However, some materials can only be disposed at selected sites. Check councils website

2. Reuse
Donate your usable but unwanted furniture, tools, appliances, building and outdoor materials and kitchen items to charities or drop them off at waste facilities for the Treasure Markets at Caboolture and Dakabin. That way theyll get a second lease on life.

3. Recover
Take your garden clippings and branches to the green waste area of your local waste facility so they can be turned into mulch. Drop off unusable timber furniture to the timber area to be chipped. Waste facilities will also take old gas bottles (limit of one per visit) and tyres (limit of two per visit) for recovery of metal and rubber. Unwanted concrete can be crushed and used for drainage and access roads at the waste facilities.

at www.moretonbay. qld.gov.au for details on what items can be taken where and try the different facilities to see which suits you best. Bunya - Bunya Road, near Bunya State Forest and visible from the Jinker Track. Caboolture - 51

4. Responsibly dispose
Make sure items such as household chemicals and paint, oil, car and boat batteries and fluorescent globes are dropped off at the appropriate regulated or hazardous waste section at Dakabin, Caboolture, Bunya and Redcliffe waste facilities. If you want to get rid of materials containing asbestos or contaminated soils, phone council on 3205 0555 before disposal as regulations apply.

McNaught Road, via Pasturage Road, off Bribie Island Road. Dakabin - Old Gympie Road, 200m north of the Alma Road intersection. Redcliffe - 261 Duffield Road, Clontarf.
