Lovely work presumably by a volunteer Tosser. Seeing these piles raises consciousness about the plight of the river & the need for a Cash for Containers scheme.

The Cooks River Tossers are holding an event this Sunday & invite anyone interested to come along.

As part of their Cash for Containers campaign, they will be gathering at Tennant Parade Bridge next to the old tennis courts to take plastic bottles from the river & toss them onto the riverbank.

They ask –

  • That Tossers wear gloves & boots.
  • That the bottles are placed in mounds away from the footpath, so as not to cause obstruction or safety issues for others.
  • The bottles tossed are not to be bagged or removed from the site.

‘The Cooks River Fun Run’ is also on this Sunday. The Fun Run will start from Strathfield at 8am & will head along the Cooks River towards Botany Bay. “A perfect time to highlight the number of bottles on the river & raise awareness re the need for a 10 cent refund.”

WHEN:   This Sunday 22nd June 2014

WHERE:    The central tossing site will be held the Tennant Parade Bridge that crosses the river. At 9.30am there will be a Tossing Competition on old Tennis courts with prizes to be won.

Tossing can happen anywhere along the river.
