Cardinia Shire residents, businesses and schools are encouraged to sign up for this year’s Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday 7 March 2021.
Cardinia Shire Council Mayor Councillor Brett Owen said there’s already a number of local spots registered and last year community volunteers and Council removed around 15 cubic metres of bagged rubbish and 19 tyres from across the shire.
“I encourage everyone to get involved this year, find a local park, reserve or walking track. You can register a new ‘clean up’ site , or sign up to attend a local spot already registered on the Clean Up Australia Day website,” he said.
All Cardinia Shire residents who register a site will receive a free clean-up kit including bags and gloves. Cardinia Shire will also assist with the collection and disposal of all rubbish collected on the day.
Clean Up Australia Day started in 1990.
Over 18.3 million Australians have donated their time as part of Clean Up Australia Day activities over the last 30 years.
It is estimated that more than 380,000 ute-loads of rubbish has been removed as part of Clean Up Australia Day activities.
Schools and local businesses can sign up for Business Clean Up Day on Tuesday 2 March and Schools Clean Up Day on Friday 5 March. More info: https://www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au
