The scene is set for this Sunday’s Clean Up Australia Day and more volunteers are needed.
Batemans Bay Dive will be searching the Clyde River for trash from Batemans Bay’s T-Wharf however they need more divers and people who can help on land to lift found items and put them in the skip bin. Those keen to help in the water can take advantage of free air fills and discounted gear hire.
Region X is holding a free group paddle in Cullendulla Creek to collect rubbish from 8am. They will also provide free kayak hire out of Mossy Point boat ramp between 9am and noon for those interested in collecting trash from the Tomaga River and banks.
Anyone interested in cleaning up the Broulee and Mossy Point areas can also grab some bags and gloves from the Mossy Point Boat Ramp.

Eurobodalla Clean Up Australia Project Officer Maree Cadman said 26 clean-up sites were registered while 13 schools were participating in Schools Clean Up Day on Friday 2 March.
