It’s time to take a look around your local area – your streets, parks, sporting grounds, beaches, bushland and waterways to find those rubbish hotspots that need attention and register a local site for Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday 6 March 2016.

2015 was the year  great progress was made with the announcement of a container refund scheme in NSW, and discussion about how we reduce the number of plastic bags being handed out at checkouts.in NSW and Qld. But it is imperative that we also keep on top of all the other litter that accumulates areas around us.

According to Chairman and Founder of Clean Up Australia, Ian Kiernan, registering a local site on Clean Up Australia Day is the perfect way to identify local trouble-spots and free your favourite local areas of senseless rubbish.

“Come on Australia – Let’s make this Clean Up Day the biggest one yet! Our website is open for registrations and once again we need your generosity and passion for the environment to make 2016 a success,” said Mr Kiernan.

In 2015 more than 535,000 volunteers removed an estimated 14,000 tonnes of rubbish from 6,890 sites across Australia.

Registrations for 2016 Clean Up sites are now open. To register go to: cleanupaustraliaday.org.au
