It’s time to take a look around our local area – 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, March 6.
A spokesperson from Queensland Parks and Wildlife said, “There is already a clean-up crew registered for Inskip.”
“Anyone or groups can register their own site (in the location they prefer) or join one that is already registered.”
“The QPWS team on the day will be registering a site to clean up along the Rainbow Beach Road, starting from the info centre and see how far we get…”
According to Chairman and Founder of Clean Up Australia, Ian Kiernan AO, registering a local site on Clean Up Australia Day is the perfect way to 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.
“I am pleased once again to work with all of our volunteers who continue to tirelessly remove rubbish from your local area. However, this year I would like to challenge everyone else to get involved in what is now the biggest community mobilisation event in the Southern Hemisphere.
“Find a local rubbish hotspot or favourite location and then organise your family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to join your team.”
Over the last 26 years volunteers have donated more than 29.8 million hours towards caring for the environment through Clean Up Australia Day. Registrations for 2016 Clean Up sites are now open: cleanupaustraliaday.org.au
