Residents are being encouraged to keep their town clean by picking up litter at one of the 2024 Clean Up Australia Day events happening across Campaspe Shire.

In 2023, over 760,000 Australians stepped up to help our environment and show their community spirit for Clean Up Australia Day – this year council is inviting locals to clean up Campaspe on Sunday, 3 March.

Clean Up Australia will be sending starter kits including bags, gloves, and other resources to those who register to host an event.

Mayor Rob Amos is encouraging everyone to join a clean-up crew in their community.

“Community groups, businesses, and individuals across our region have done a fantastic job organising Clean Up events. We have continued to support these events by providing essential resources,” Mayor Amos said.

“As always, there’s fantastic uptake from the local schools and businesses in the region, who support the Clean Up initiative through the dedicated Clean Up Australia schools and business days. 

“If you’re interested in registering for an event but haven’t done so, there’s still time to create an event of your own. Visit the Clean Up Australia website,” Amos adds.

Campaspe Shire Council Director of Sustainability, Michael Sharp, says it’s a great initiative for Australia and there are fantastic benefits for the shire.

“With the support of the community, we work towards stopping litter from ending up in our public spaces, bushland, and waterways. If there’s less rubbish around on the ground, people are less likely to litter.

“Rubbish that is thrown away, even in small amounts, can still do great damage to our native wildlife and affects the appearance of our neighborhoods,” Sharp said.
