Scheme pays off
THE GAYNDAH Freemasons and Lions were surprised by a lack of drink cans and bottles found at a recent road-side clean up. Seven volunteers picked up rubbish on the eastern approach to Gayndah from Beronne Road to Oakey Creek. Compared to previous clean-ups they had little to collect. "The rest area was the cleanest we have ever seen it," Gayndah Lions' Henry Harman said. They believe the Containers for Change scheme is paying off.
