Sign up to Clean Up Moreton Bay
Published 16 February 2022
It’s that time of the year when Moreton Bay locals roll up their sleeve and take pride in place by joining the nation’s largest community-based environment event - Clean Up Australia Day!
With less than a month until Sunday March 6, Mayor Peter Flannery is calling on residents to register their Clean Up sites now before time runs out.
“Moreton Bay locals are passionate about their community and the environment, so this is the perfect opportunity to do your bit to make sure our region is in pristine condition for our kids and the wildlife in which we share our land and waterways with,” he said.
“We’re the third largest Council in Australia and we’re the fifth fastest growing Local Government Area too, so the environment has never been more important.
“I’m dedicated to ensuring Moreton Bay is ‘greening as we grow’ through a host of environmentally friendly initiatives like supporting Clean Up Australia Day.
“Did you know we’re constructing green roads out of recycled car tyres, which has saved 2,200 tonnes of landfill from ending up in our waste facilities as well as making huge carbon savings?
“We’re also turning methane gas emissions from our waste facilities into green renewable energy that powers up to 7,000 homes.
“These are just a few of the examples this Council is doing to make sure Moreton Bay is better place for everyone to enjoy for many years to come.
“Join thousands of volunteers and register a Clean Up Australia Day site for this March 6 by visiting Council’s website or simply join one of the many events near you.”
