The nation’s largest community-based environment event, Clean Up Australia Day, is back and locals are stepping up to keep Moreton Bay beautiful! 

The countdown is on and City of Moreton Bay Mayor Peter Flannery urges residents to register their clean up sites in time to claim their very own free clean up kits.  

“The Moreton Bay community has let us know that our natural spaces are important to them, so Clean Up Australia Day is a great opportunity for locals to do their part, register and help keep our amazing places clean and healthy,” Mayor Flannery said.  

“As we continue to go green as we grow, it becomes even more important to support initiatives like Clean Up Australia Day and look after the place we call home. 

“Cleaning up the existing litter in our environment encourages us to reflect on how our rubbish enters and affects our land, waterways and wildlife. 

“Our community members have the chance to consider practical ways to prevent litter from getting into the environment in the first place.  

“Perhaps a practical way to make a change is to start recycling right, to make sure our rubbish stays out of the places we love to use for our morning walks and weekend adventures.  

“Last year, we had 169 clean-up sites registered for Clean Up Australia Day and now that our region has grown, I am sure we can do even better.

“Do your part for the environment by registering a clean-up site through Council’s website and join thousands of volunteers on Sunday March 3.”
