Each year, Council’s across the country work hard to make Clean Up Australia Day a success and Shoalhaven City Council is continuing to clean up our City.
On Sunday, 5 March 2017 Clean up Australia will come to the Shoalhaven.
Council is supporting locals who take to their streets, parks, waterways, beaches and bushland to Clean Up the area and will be facilitating rubbish pickups in registered Clean Up Australia areas.
On Tuesday, 7 March, the Shoalhaven River Watch group has organised a group of volunteer divers with boats to assist with removing shopping trolleys and submerged items from the Shoalhaven River particularly underneath the Nowra bridge commencing 8am from Greys Beach. The day will finish with a BBQ and volunteers are welcome to join the day. For more information contact Peter at Shoalhaven River Watch on Tel: 0488460011. Since starting the clean up of the river, 153 trolleys have been excavated out of the river.
Mayor Amanda Findley said, “Clean Up Australia Day is a day everyone can make a difference to our City and pick up rubbish, report large items and clean up our beaches and parks. Our City is our future, and all our community can get involved to help create a healthy environment.”
So get involved and help clean up the Shoalhaven. Registered sites can be found at www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au/join/?location=Shoalhaven&kw= or set up your own site.
