2019 Clean Up Australia Day registrations are open, so it’s time to check out rubbish hotspots in your neighbourhood and challenge your friends and family to make 2019 the year when change starts with you.
Businesses are encouraged to focus their action on Clean Up Day – Tuesday 26 February with Schools running their own Clean Up on Friday 1 March and youth and community groups taking to their streets over the weekend of 2-3 March.
Participating in one or more of these events is the perfect opportunity to join with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to remove all the rubbish accumulating in your local park, bushland, beaches and waterways before it kills our wildlife.
Online registrations are free: www.cleanupaustralia.org.au
“Ian firmly believed that every single one of us can and should make a difference. Volunteer action was his amazingly simple idea, his dream and his inspiration. His passion was working alongside his fellow Aussies as we clean up our environment and/ or reduce waste before it is a problem. Moving into the future I urge all Australians to take up the challenge – become Ian’s successor and continue the momentum he fostered.”
Clean Up Australia is owned by the community. 100% of monies raised through donation is allocated to the purchase of materials provided free of charge to community, school and youth groups across the nation all year round. “So, whether you are going to make a donation or get together to clean up your local environment –change starts with you!”
