    Clean Up Australia Day 2024

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…
