MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 30, 2008 23 ONE DEGREE OF CHANGE -- IT'S ABOUT EVERY ONE OF US Local heroes Leading lights It's a fact Action plan to grow greener The establishment of an Environment and Sustainability Committee was decided by Burwood Council early this month. The committee's functions will include advising the council on the implementation of the Green Action Plan approved in November 2007, the council's participation with the Cities for Climate Protection Program, as well as developing a Sustainability Action Plan. The decision followed a notice of motion presented by Cr Christine Donayre, who suggested ''an Environment & Sustainability Committee on Burwood Council can work successfully with the community to establish a 10-year Sustainability Action Plan for Burwood''. The constitution and the structure of the committee will be considered at the next ordinary meeting on December 9.

To qualify for the offer, second fridges must be at least 10 years old, 250 litres or larger and in working order.
