Mareeba Shire Council is pleased to advise that a project has commenced to refresh the waste bins in Byrnes Street, Mareeba.
The fresh new bins will create a visual element to Byrnes Street. They will showcase the history of Byrnes Street with a heritage image from the CBD on one side of the bin while celebrating a selection of the Shire’s natural attractions and experiences, with a bright modern image on the other side.
Artwork & Design
Draft designs have been created and residents are invited to have their say on the designs.
Council acknowledges the assistance of Mary Thompson from the Mareeba Heritage Museum & Visitor Information Centre for her assistance with the historical images and information.
