Community groups, schools and businesses across Mitchell Shire are stepping up to clean up on Clean Up Australia Day, and residents are encouraged to roll up their sleeves and get involved as well.
A number of sites have been registered across the municipality to join in the clean up. Clean up Australia Day is held on Sunday 7 March, but local clean up events will be held on various days through the week.
The day gives residents the chance to showcase their community pride by coming together to improve the appearance of local public spaces while supporting the environment at the same time.
There has never been a better time to tackle the surge in single-use disposable items, such as takeaway coffee cups, food packaging, masks and sanitised wipes – all of which have polluted our local parks, bushland, streets and waterways.
All volunteers are advised to bring a hat, gloves, sunscreen, drinking water and to wear closed toe shoes.
