Find a site for Clean Up Australia Day

Community groups, schools and businesses across Mitchell Shire are stepping up to clean up on Clean Up Australia Day, and residents are encouraged to roll up their sleeves and get involved as well.

A number of sites have been registered across the municipality to join in the clean up on Sunday 1 March in Broadford, Kilmore, Seymour, Wallan and Upper Plenty.

The day gives residents the chance to showcase their community pride by coming together to improve the appearance of local public spaces while supporting the environment at the same time.

All volunteers are advised to bring a hat, gloves, sunscreen, drinking water and to wear closed toe shoes.

Quotes attributable to Mitchell Shire Mayor Councillor David Lowe

“Unfortunately, litter and dumped rubbish pollutes our streets, parks, bushland and waterways, impacting on one of our greatest assets – nature.

“Clean Up Australia Day is fun, easy and anyone can take part. I commend the local groups that are organising a clean-up for their area and thank everyone who will take part this on Sunday.”
