Clean Up Australia Day

Print this Page
Clean Up Australia Day 2011

Do your bit to help keep the Illawarra beautiful and join in this annual clean up that's held on the first weekend in March. Clean up efforts focus on removing rubbish from stormwater drains and watercourses, which lead to larger waters, and bushlands used for recreation purposes.

Clean Up Australia Day is fun, easy and everyone can take part. Individuals and community groups can either organise a clean up site or volunteer to join an existing site.

Wet Weather arrangements

In the event of rain, it is expected that most clean ups will still go ahead. However, we're asking anyone participating in clean ups to avoid waterways such as creeks or stormwater channels due to the risk of flash flooding.
