Big clean up on again tomorrow

PICK up your garbage bags and pull on your gloves – it’s time to Clean Up the Coffs Coast.

This Sunday is Clean Up Australia Day and there are plenty of people gearing up to make our city cleaner and greener.

Whether you’re part of one if the bigger groups – 20 people have registered online to clean up the Hogbin Drive Cycleway – or you’re out there on your own, there’s no doubt even picking up just once piece of rubbish will make a difference.

“We’re aiming to make 2010 Clean Up Australia Day’s biggest year yet,” founder Ian Kiernan said.

Last year, almost 630,000 volunteers participated and 7000 sites were registered for Clean Up Australia Day and this year there’s an even greater reason to participate, with Clean Up Australia Day celebrating its 20th national anniversary.

“Now is a crucial time for Australians to get behind their local community and do their bit,” Mr Kiernan said.

“Clean Up Australia Day is a fantastic, fun event where everyone in the local community can come together and pick up rubbish to conserve the environment. Just one piece of rubbish can make a difference and ensure your favourite local beaches stay clean for the future.”
