Locals encouraged to register a site for Clean Up Australia Day following spike in single-use items

Registrations for Clean Up Australia Day 2021 are open and Lake Macquarie City Council is urging the community to ‘Step Up to Clean Up’ on Sunday 7 March.

Manager Community Partnerships Andrew Bryant said COVID-19 had seen a sharp increase in the amount of single-use disposable items used throughout the community, meaning the Clean Up Australia Day message had never been more important.

“Clean Up Australia Day is an opportunity for our community to come together and feel pride in their City and the environment,” Mr Bryant said.

“COVID-safe measures will be in place and organising a site is simple. Just identify an area in need of a clean-up and register it on the Clean Up Australia Day website by Friday 19 February.”

Individuals, businesses, schools, community groups and youth groups can register sites anywhere in Lake Macquarie, and volunteers can simply join in for the day on Sunday 7 March.

Last year in Lake Macquarie, more than 8000 volunteers collected nine tonnes of rubbish at 84 different local clean-up sites.

“This was the highest number of sites in the Hunter Region and the aim for 2021 is to be even bigger,” Mr Bryant said.

Head to cleanup.org by Friday 19 February and register your site or find local sites already registered.
