Member for Monaro John Barilaro has continued to applaud the efforts of locals recognised at the recent Monaro Service Awards.

Mr Barilaro has now recognised in a social-media post the contribution of Bruce Easton to the Jindabyne Chamber of Commerce.

Mr Easton is the president of the Chamber, and Mr Barilaro says he supports small businesses in his role to ensure Jindabyne prospers.

He says he doesn't know how he finds the time to undertake the vast amount of work required, but does so to an excellent extent.

He says Mr Easton's work is for the people of Jindabyne and the Monaro, and it was a pleasure to thank him with a Monaro Service Award.

Ceremonies were held recently in Cooma and Queanbeyan.

The Snowy Monaro Regional Council is calling on locals to safely dispose of sharp objects, such as needles and syringes.

The Council says incorrect disposal of sharps can pose a health or safety risk to people within the community, or staff engaged in waste-collection services.

Sharps must never be placed into any street litter, kerbside recycling, garbage or food-and-garden bins.

Recycling and garden waste are normally sorted by hand, so any sharps pose arisk for staff.

There are a number of locations throughout the Snowy Monaro at which locals are able to dispose safely.
