Grab a bag, put on your gloves, get outdoors and help to Clean Up Australia on Sunday 3 March 2019. Having begun in 1989, Clean Up Australia Day continues to encourage individuals and communities to mount an environmental effort to rid the community of dumped garbage and keep Australia at its beautiful best.

From the germ of an idea, Clean up Australia Day has gone on to blossom into one of the country's largest community-based environmental events. Whether you are part of a school, a business or a community, there is a way to get involved to collect rubbish and waste littered in parks, beaches and bushland.

Events are planned for various sites some with there own specifically allocated dates:

26 February business clean up
1 March School and Early Learning Centre clean up
3 March general Clean Up Australia Day

If you are keen to join in, reach out to Brisbane City Council City Smart who coordinates volunteers and activities across the city.

In 2018, the event attracted 14500 volunteers across 321 registered sites in Brisbane and removed 706.2 tones of rubbish. What an effort.

Sadly, founder and former Australian of the Year, Ian Kiernan, passed away in 2018 but his legacy lives on. So make a difference for the environment this Clean Up Australia Day and see how change starts with you.
