Gloves on for Clean Up Australia Day this Sunday

Eurobodalla residents are getting ready for a big Clean Up Australia Day this Sunday.

44 local sites have been registered, from beaches and rivers to cycle paths and town streets, and Eurobodalla Council is calling for more volunteers to lend a hand.

Project officer Maree Cadman says all you need to do is turn up at a site near you with a hat, sturdy footwear, sunscreen and water.

“All the gloves and bags are provided and it just takes is an hour of your time to help clean up our beautiful shire,” she said.

“We also have some fantastic vouchers and prizes donated by local businesses and organisations to hand out on the day.”

To find a site near you, visit and type in Eurobodalla under Join a Site. There’s still time to register a site, too.

Last year, 305 community volunteers and students from 12 schools collect 68.4 cubic metres of rubbish from Clean Up sites across Eurobodalla.

Above: Clean Up Australia Day is this Sunday 5 March and Eurobodalla residents can show up at one of 44 sites around the shire to do their bit for litter reduction. Malua Bay firies Ian Barnes, Chris Hall, Rob Geraghty, Graeme Skelton, Dan Hall, Bill Chilvers, Pat Harris and Tracey Anderson were part of the 2016 Clean Up Australia Day effort. Media Release
