All funds raised at the BBQ will assist the Mono Tennis Club in the construction of the two new tennis courts at Mono Centre.
Is there an area in your area where there always seems to be garbage? We want to hear from you!
The best way to let us know about some garbage that needs to be picked up is using the What3Words app. The app has a photo mode that will let you take a picture of it and overlay the What3Words address.
It helps us, because a What3Words address refers to a 3 metre square location. Being that specific with where the garbage is will really help us find it quickly!
Open the What3Words app on your mobile device
You can just share the images with us on Facebook or Twitter without using What3Words. Another alternative is to contact us using our contact form and let us know where the garbage is. If you cannot use What3Words, please be as specific as possible. If the location is vague, we will not be able to direct the community clean up attendees to the site.
While this is only one day, please help to continue making Mono Shine! Learn more about how you can celebrate earth day every day.
