2019 Clean Up Australia Day registrations are now open. Online registrations are free and now open at www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au
Over the last 29 years volunteers have donated more than 33 million hours, at over 178,000 locations across the country. Together they have removed the equivalent of 350 thousand ute-loads of rubbish across Australia.
Businesses are encouraged to focus their action on Business Clean Up Day – Tuesday 26 February with schools running their own Clean Up on Friday 1 March.
Participating in one or more of these events is the perfect opportunity to join with family, friends, neighbours and colleagues to remove rubbish accumulating in your local park, bushland or waterways.
