How you can help make the Sunshine Coast shine

You are invited to step up and join a local group to help clean up our beautiful Sunshine Coast.

No matter where you live, they will be happy to have your help on Clean up Australia Day on Sunday, March 3.

This year several groups will be running clean-ups, including Currimundi Catchment Care Group, Eumundi Rotary, Kawana Scouts, Night Eyes Water & Landcare, Twin Waters Residents Association and many more.

Everyone is welcome to join in and the day presents a great opportunity to get to know more people from your community and make a real difference to our environment.

To register, simply visit the Clean Up Australia Day website at www.cleanup.org.au/cleanupaustraliaday, select ‘Clean up events’ then ‘join a clean-up’ and search for an event nearby by entering your postcode or suburb.

Registration is free and covers participants under Clean Up Australia Day’s public liability insurance.

Sunshine Coast Council Manager for Waste and Resource Management John Hogg said Clean Up Australia Day was a time to make the Sunshine Coast shine.

“Each year we have amazing schools, businesses and community groups all lending a hand – last year, around 1200 people picked up four tonnes of rubbish across 100 different Sunshine Coast parks, reserves and beaches.

“Council proudly supports the event through our Waste 2 Resource Education Program, assisting groups to organise their events, and arranging for the litter to be collected.

“And we are grateful to the many inspirational groups and individuals who participate in and lead our region’s clean-up activities, both on Clean Up Australia Day and throughout the year.

“They do a wonderful job every year, helping Council to achieve our vision of a sustainable region, and we thank all the volunteers for being so generous with your time.”
