Clean Up Australia Day
Just one day left to Clean Up Australia Day 2011! The event will be held on Sunday, 6 March.
Clean Up Australia Day has been running since 1990 and has become the nation’s largest community-based environmental event. It attracts hundreds of thousands of volunteers from the community, schools and businesses to help clean up and conserve their environment. In 2010 more than 588,000 volunteers across Australia helped to celebrate 20 years of Clean Up Australia by donning gloves and filling up Clean Up Australia Day rubbish bags with an estimated 15,560 tonnes of rubbish at 7,073 registered Sites across Australia.
This year, Brisbane City Council is calling for the overwhelming community spirit seen in the aftermath of the January floods to continue for Clean Up Australia Day.
There is still a huge need for community help to clean up Brisbane and Clean Up Australia Day gives you the chance to volunteer for both flood affected and non-flood affected areas.
Help make this year Brisbane’s biggest ever Clean Up Australia Day event!
To volunteer at a Council priority flood clean up site:
• find a Council clean-up site
• register to volunteer
• find out what to do on the day
• remember to check the terms and conditions
You can also register your own site for clean up or locate your nearest clean up site by going to the Clean Up Australia Day website.
Yours in “Cleaning Up Australia”
