News Article Date: 
Monday, 23 February 2015

Clean Up Australia Day is on March 1 and you’re invited to help collect rubbish from our public spaces.

A number of groups have registered clean-up sites across Warrnambool in public open spaces and along our waterways.

If you’re not involved in a group clean-up come down to Viaduct Rd at 10am to register and pick up your gloves and bags.

You can either cleanup around the foreshore area or head to another site. The event concludes at midday.

In 2014, thanks to an estimated 572,406 volunteers, 15,708 tonnes of rubbish was collected at 7140 sites across Australia.

Since the national event started in 1990, Australians have donated more than 27.2 million hours taking to their streets, bushland, parks and waterways on Clean Up Australia Day, removing an estimated 288,650 tonnes of rubbish from 145,754 sites across the country.
