Mayor King seeking helpers to clean up the Shire

IT'S not too late to volunteers a few hours of your time on Clean Up Australia Day.

March 4 is the date earmarked for Australia's biggest annual raid on rubbish and while many dedicated community groups have already registered in Bellingen Shire, Mayor Dominic King says more helpers are needed.

"We are still looking for volunteers to help clean up our natural environment," he said.

"If you have an area that you are interested in cleaning up or your want to volunteer at a site, participating is a great way to get rid of rubbish that is accumulating on neighbourhood streets and beaches, in parks, bushland and waterways."

Once registered, organisers of sites will be sent a free clean up kit with officially marked clean up bags and gloves to help with the collection of waste and recyclables.

Site supervisors are invited to liaise with council as soon as possible by calling 6655 7300 to organise disposal or recycling of rubbish collected on the day.
