People urged to clean up

People are being encouraged to clean up any day of the year, not just when there’s a campaign on.

CLEAN Up Australia is encouraging communities to help clean up their local environments, in a bid to reduce the environmental harm caused by littering.
The ‘Step up and create a Clean Up’ program encourages people to organise clean up events for any day of the year, and get friends, family and local residents together to make a difference and that improve the environment.
Clean Up Australia will send out free starter kits that contains bags, gloves and everything needed to create a safe, fun and effective clean up.
The organisation can provide materials for individuals, families (two adults, two children), groups of 10 and groups of 20.
There are also clean up material options for those who want to cut down on waste, and people are also encouraged to use their own resources.
