Clean Up Australia Day

Clean Up Australia’s 2010 campaign is now well underway and we are hoping to make it the biggest community event to date! Every year hundreds of thousands of Australians get stuck in and clean up their local environment by collecting and removing rubbish on Clean Up Australia Day.

2010 marks the 20th anniversary of Clean Up Australia Day and we hope to encourage and inspire thousands of Australians to take to their local park, beach, bushland and streets and really help make a difference. Clean Up Australia remains Australia’s largest community event, it is a fun and easy event that anyone and everyone can get involved in. Individuals and local groups can either organise a clean up site or volunteer to join an existing site.

Clean Up Australia has made a huge difference since the first event in 1990. Just last year we picked up 2 million pieces of rubbish. That’s pretty amazing and we want to say ‘thank you’. What’s even more amazing is if each and every Australian picks up JUST 1 piece of rubbish, we’ll pick up 10 times more than last year. That’s around 20 million pieces of rubbish. So for our 20th Anniversary, we’re asking people to make this the best Clean Up Australia Day ever – by picking up JUST 1 piece of rubbish. Together we can make a difference.

Registrations for Clean Up Australia Day 2010 is now open. For more information on organising a site please click here.
