Clean Up The Community

This can be done on an ad-hoc basis by simply picking up litter as you see it. It can also be undertaken on a larger scale by involving others in a designated clean up day. Most councils will support you by offering advice and locating equipment such as:

  1. Litter pickers
  2. Bags
  3. Brushes
  4. Gloves

See links below for more information on specific councils. Some require 2 week notice of the clean up event.
