Clean Up Australia Day

Australians are the second highest producers of waste per person in the world, with an estimated 7 billion cigarette butts and 50 million plastic bags littered in Australia each year.

Council has proudly supported Clean Up Australia Day for the past 19 years, helping communities to clean up, fix up and conserve Eurobodalla's environment. Held every year on the first Sunday in March, the day attracts more than half a million volunteers Australia-wide, and is the nation's largest community-based environmental event. Thank you to all those volunteers and businesses who have helped us clean up our waterways, parklands and beaches over the years.

Clean Up Australia Day 2020

  • Friday 28 February 2020 for schools

Get involved

Clean Up Australia Day is fun, easy and everyone can get involved picking up rubbish in their local area. More than 30 clean up sites have been registered in Eurobodalla for Sunday 1 March. Around 10 of those are open to the public and anyone can join in.

Everyday clean up

No need to wait for March to come around, you can also register to help clean up Australia every day. Once registered, you will receive a starter kit with helpful materials to run your site.
