Calls for Lake Mac to get involved this Clean Up Australia Day


Thousands of volunteers are expected to descend on more than 70 sites across Lake Macquarie this weekend to tackle the ongoing litter problem as part of Clean Up Australia Day.

“The Clean Up Australia Day message had never been more important, with disposable item use in the community up significantly since the start of COVID-19,” Mr Bryant said.


Clean Up Australia Day started in Lake Macquarie more than 30 years ago and aims to foster relationships between the community, business and government to address the environmental issues of waste, water and climate change.

“We’re encouraging people in the community to volunteer a few hours of their time at a Lake Mac site that is special to them,” Mr Bryant said.


“The commitment shown by volunteers each year is always impressive and really reflects the pride they have for their local environment.”


During the past 30 years, more than 18.3 million Australians have devoted 36 million hours towards the environment through Clean Up Australia Day, collecting more than 380,000 tonnes of rubbish.


Clean Up Australia Day will take place on Sunday 7 March as a COVID-safe event. To find your nearest site head to CleanUp.org.
