Clean-up drive to keep highway spick and span

MANY locals have complained about the increasing amount of rubbish lining the Sapphire to Woolgoolga stretch of the Pacific Highway.

The Coffs Coast Advocate are acting on your concerns and starting a campaign to clean up the mess.

This week, we've spoken to a number of concerned community leaders, members of Coffs Harbour City Council and the NSW Roads and Maritime Authority about the issue.

We've had a strong response from all parties who are keen to get on board to rid the road of the accumulating litter.

Yesterday, we spoke with Cr Mark Sultana who is working to collaborate with the council on a range of sustainable projects including a plan to clean up the mess.

"The issue is we have rubbish out there right now that needs picking up," he said.

The clean-up is especially warranted in the lead-up to next month's Coates Hire Rally Australia marking the start of the Coffs Coast's peak tourism season.

See the Advocate on Saturday where we'll list what action is happening while sharing community views on the issue.
