RID Community Champions

Congratulations to Mollymook Surf Club, winners or the RID Community Champions program 2016!  

About the program

RID Community Champions is an innovative educational program pioneered by Shoalhaven City Council Rangers aiming to prevent illegal rubbish dumping by motivating and educating the community at a grassroots level.

Shoalhaven City Council launched the program in 2016, inviting sporting clubs from across the Shoalhaven to apply for the program, with the following three clubs selected to participate as finalists:

  • Shoalhaven Mariners Baseball Club
  • Bay and Basin Cricket Club
  • Mollymook Surf Life Saving Club

The three clubs campaigned for seven weeks to educated and motivate their local communities to Report Illegal Dumping. 

Mollymook Surf Life Saving Club was awarded as having the most effective campaign and was rewarded with $5,000 worth of equipment for their club. The two runner up clubs, Shoalhaven Mariners Baseball Club and Bay and Basin Cricket Club, each received $2,500 worth of equipment.

Council sincerely thanks the members of all three clubs for participating in the program.

Report Illegal Dumping

Shoalhaven City Council Rangers work hard to combat illegal dumping. With 49 towns and villages in the Shoalhaven, there is a lot of ground to cover. Council needs your help to report anything that you may see in your local area.

By reporting illegal dumping you can help prevent damage to the environment and reduce risks to human health. Dumpers face heavy fines and repeat offenders can be sentenced to prison.


Get your sporting community involved in promoting the RID Hotline 131 555.
