Return and Earn

Every year more than 160 million drink containers become litter in NSW. This hurts our environment and costs our community millions of dollars to clean away. In Rylstone the Food Works grocery store and bottle shop are accepting eligible drink containers.

Most 150 millilitres to three litre drink containers are refundable if they are made from: glass, plastic, aluminium, steel and liquid paperboard(cartons). Generally, if the container has ten cent refund it is eligible. Aluminium cans and plastic bottles must be empty and uncrushed and unbroken.

Di Kearney, manager of Food Works, Rylstone said, “There is a limit of 100 containers at one time.” Go to the website; returnandearn.org.au for your nearest collection point. Why not organise the refunds for your local charity?

Kandos ‘Twin Towns’ Pizzeria

Damian’s Photographic Exhibition

The No. 47 Gallery in Louee st, Rylstone was crowded last Saturday, for the opening of Damian Castaldi’s Photographic display, titled “Our Town”. Many of the subjects portrayed were on hand to see the results.

Damian said, “I set about taking snapshots of people I had come across since moving to Kandos with my wife, Solange in mid-2016.

I was inspired by the random view one, cold, winters day, of Nalan crossing Louee street with her trolley. “Cowboy” popped up next, walking his dog in Dangar St, Kandos, then Peter was watering his garden and the rest followed.

“Our Town” is a sample of those snapshots and encounters. It might give you a sense of the two towns in the faces and characters of a small section of people who live here.

Rylstone Markets

The popular Rylstone Artisan and Producers Markets will be in recess until March 10 due to the hot weather and holidays. Members are looking forward to a big day in March.
