Busy volunteers clean up

Sunday’s rainy weather didn’t stop an estimated 280 volunteers getting out and about for Clean Up Australia Day.

Project officer Maree Cadman said close to 60 cubic metres of rubbish has been collected from Eurobodalla’s parks, streets, waterways and bushland.

“So far, site coordinators are reporting recyclables and cigarette butts as the most common items encountered, followed by fast food wrappers and containers, as well as tyres, mattresses and old furniture.

“We had 12 new groups cleaning up this year, which is just fantastic, and 53 registered sites – an increase on last year.

“Local businesses and organisations generously donated over $2000 worth of prizes, meaning all registered volunteers had a chance to win a prize for their dedication to the Clean Up Australia Day.

“The volunteers I spoke to were extremely happy contributing to their local community and reported generally less rubbish than last year.”
