Residents encouraged to volunteer for Clean Up Australia Day

Grab some gloves and a garbage bag because Clean Up Australia Day is coming up. 

Every year, thousands of volunteers hit Australia's streets, beaches and parks to pick up as much litter as they can. 

Every year, Strathfield Council choses a new park to focus their clean up efforts. 

For 2014, residents are encouraged to head down to Cooke Park in Belfield. 

 

Mayor of Strathfield, Cr Daniel Bott believes residents play an important role in keeping the community clean.

“Often we don’t realise the impact we have on the environment in our day to day lives. Strathfield residents are fortunate to live in a beautiful area, and it is up to us to keep it that way,” said Cr Bott.

“Clean Up Australia Day is the perfect opportunity for everyone to come together and help clean up our local parks and streets and think about how we can reduce our impact on the environment.”

Anyone and everyone can get involved, simply go to www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au to register as a volunteer or meet at the playground at the end of Chisholm Street, Cooke Park, Belfield from 9:30am on March 2 to participate in this great event. Bags and gloves will be provided, participants should wear comfortable clothing, footwear and sun protection.
