Clean Up Australia Day 2024

Thanks to the wonderful volunteers who braved the steamy weather this morning to join us for our Clean Up Australia Day event at Little Mountain. 24 volunteers collected lots of rubbish, though pleasing to report general feeling was an improvement on previous years. Container refund scheme still working with (only) 104 drink containers. Only 1 plastic straw (replaced with lots of paper ones), showing state ban is working too. As in previous years Slurpee cups & lids the single biggest problem closely followed by miscellaneous soft plastics. We finished up with our usual sausage sizzle and cold drink. Great to see some regular families returning and good to see some council candidates & teams working with the community.  Thanks to Kawana MP Jarrod Bleijie for your generous donation & coming along today. Thanks Enid, Christine, Fergus and Tony from CCCG for running the event.
