Volunteer to keep our city clean
Clean-Up Australia Day
Every year hundreds of thousands of Australians help clean-up their local environment on Clean Up Australia Day. It's fun, easy and everyone can take part. Individuals and local groups can either organise a clean-up site or volunteer to join an existing site.
The day is firmly entrenched in the Australian calendar. It is an apolitical, non-profit community campaign where everyone can participate.
Clean-Up Australia Day has successfully grown each year to make this community event the largest annual environmental campaign in Australia. Each year over 6000 sites across the country participate in the campaign, helping remove a staggering 7000 tones of rubbish!
Please visit Clean-Up Australia to register or join a site.
