Gather your mates for Clean Up Australia Day

Published: 21 February 2023

It’s time to stop talking garbage and start acting on it says Eurobodalla’s Clean Up Australia Day coordinator Maree Cadman.

Maree wants everyone to get out and join in the 2023 Clean Up on Sunday 5 March

“It’s Australia’s biggest community based environmental event. With 45 sites already registered in Eurobodalla, it’s nice to see numbers up after a few years impacted by weather, disasters and COVID,” she says.

“I do feel the time is right: Yes, you’ll be doing your bit to keep our beautiful shire looking good, but it’s looking to be quite a social occasion – a time to catch up with old friends and even make some new ones. Why not do a ring-around and get a group together.”

Eurobodalla has run Clean Up Australia Day events for the past 22 years, usually collecting between 25 and 35 cubic metres of waste each year. Waste bags and gloves are supplied.

“We also have students involved each year, with schools participating at sites close to them on Friday 3 March,’ says Maree
