Don’t miss out, join a Clean Up today! 

It is not too late to  register and join in Clean Up Australia Day 2024, which will take place nationally this Sunday 3 March.

Pip Kiernan, Chair of Clean Up Australia said: “By registering, you become an official supporter and  participant of Clean Up Australia. It’s a simple action for people of all ages to  play a vital role in preserving our environment for ourselves and for generations to come.” said Pip.

Clean Up Australia’s recent National Litter Report saw a growing trend of increased plastics, vapes and cigarette butts collected by Clean Up Australia volunteers which had made their way into our environment.

From the previous year’s report findings, soft plastics increased to 34%, a substantial 9% rise, while hard plastics comprised 28% of all surveyed litter, equating a 4% increase for plastics overall. Cigarette butts represented 16%, an increase from the previous year, and ranked second only to soft plastic pieces in individual items reported by volunteers, followed by beverage bottles. Vapes were collected at 22% of surveyed sites, an increase from 2022 when vapes were found on only 10% of surveyed sites.

“For every piece of litter collected, it is one less in our natural surroundings. Our recent report showed that of all litter collected by our volunteers, 44% was cleared from waterways, followed by parks and bushland at 16% and 11% respectively. The incredible efforts of our volunteers rolling up their sleeves and working together has an impact each Clean Up Australia Day but also all year round,” Pip continued.

“Get your friends, family and neighbours involved in this Clean Up Australia Day and help us make it the biggest one yet.” said Pip.

Registration is easy, and all schools and community-based participants receive a free Clean Up kit, containing gloves and bags and other resources, while businesses are asked to pay a small fee to cover costs.
