Clean-Up Australia Day

As lockdown restrictions ease across Australia, it’s the perfect time to organise a COVID-safe clean up event.

Now is the time to tackle last year’s surge in single use disposal items, such as takeaway coffee cups, food packaging, masks and sanitised wipes; all of which have polluted our local parks, bushland, streets, waterways.

Days listed below are a guide and if your group wishes to do their clean up at another time that is fine – the idea is to help keep our shared areas tidy. Creating a Clean Up is a great way to make a difference for our environment.

Tuesday 2 March – Business Clean Up day
Friday 5 March – Schools Clean Up day
Sunday 7 March – Clean Up Australia Day

You can register as an individual, community group, business or school. All you need to do is go through the online registration process and Clean Up Australia will send you a free Clean Up kit including bags, gloves information and promotional materials -

Give Australia Post plenty of time to get the parcel through to you but in the meantime this year the Strathbogie Shire Council is assisting Community Groups and schools who have registered their event by;

1. Offering free tipping or disposal of litter collected at a clean-up.
2. Providing extra Clean Up Australia gloves, hi-vis vests, signage and bags for event organisers if required.
3. Litter audit support. A limited number of school or community events who wish to audit the collected litter can request help in litter auditing. One of our Waste Education Officers will attend the end of the event and help complete a litter audit.
