Help keep the Georges River area beautiful on Clean Up Australia Day

01/03/2017

Georges River Council Administrator John Rayner is encouraging residents to get involved in keeping the local environment beautiful as part of Clean Up Australia Day on 5 March 2017.
 
Mr Rayner said Clean Up Australia Day is a great opportunity to get rid of litter that may have accumulated on neighbourhood streets, parks, bushland and waterways.
 
“Council is proud to support Clean Up Australia Day every year. It gives us the opportunity to work with the community to make our public spaces rubbish-free and more appealing for everyone,” he said.
 
“The Clean Up Australia Day website is open for registrations, and Council is calling for everyone to put on a pair of gloves and grab a bag.”
 
Participants need to find a location they want to clean up and register it or they can join a site that’s already registered by going to the Clean Up Australia Day website.
 
Over the last 26 years, volunteers have donated more than 31 million hours at over 166 thousand locations across the country. Together they have removed the equivalent of 331 thousand ute loads of rubbish.
 
People who wish to be Site Coordinators or volunteers are encouraged to register within the Georges River Council area to help clean up on the day.
