Clean Up Australia Day is coming up on Sunday 6 March and Gold Coast residents can get involved, with the focus on a city-wide campaign to clean up rubbish from under the water and on our beaches.
Last year the Gold Coast community collected approximately 228.8 tonnes of rubbish at 107 registered sites, and event organisers are urging Gold Coasters to improve on that this year.
Community, businesses and schools can still get involved by registering as a volunteer, with registrations open until Sunday 1 March online
Clean Up Australia Day on the Gold Coast is hosted by City of Gold Coast and coordinated by Gecko – Gold Coast and Hinterland Environment Council. Both the City and Gecko are committed to working towards a litter-free Gold Coast.
