EPA grant to clean up Kinross!

Below is a preview, click to read the full post

Great news! The club has secured a significant grant from EPA to combat the illegal dumping at Kinross Forest.

We're partnering with Forestry and both Orange and Cabonne Councils to implement a preventative strategy so that we can target the motivations of dumpers, rather than just issuing more fines that haven’t worked so far (although cameras etc. might also be part of the solution). The hope is that this will be a sustainable way to stop the dumping in the future. I know we’re all really sick of the disgusting mess out there, and tired of cleaning up the Forest before events etc - it gives a terrible impression to tourists dropping in for MTB riding.

As part of the strategy we’ll be encouraging more recreational use of the forest by mountain bikers and other users, and hoping that more people - particularly families, will use the forest in a positive way and not just see it as a tip or dumping ground.

On that note we’ll also be using some of the money for better trail signage, clean-up equipment and possibly some landscaping/ ‘beautification’ around the carpark area – to discourage people using the area like it’s a dump. Ideas from club members around this are most welcome.

It would be great if you could also get in touch with me when you see any new dump sites out at Kinross, or if you have any information or insight into the dumping itself. Also, if you’re keen to get involved in the project please let me know – my contact details are below.

Cheers,
Mel
