2020 Clean Up Australia Day

In 2019,  8,765 volunteers removed 197 tonnes of litter from 119 sites across the Barwon South West Region. Research shows that when we keep areas clean, they are less likely to be littered, so picking up every bit of litter you see, contributes to reducing littering overall!


The 2020 Clean Up Australia Day is almost here, but there’s still time to register a site, or register as a volunteer.

25 February is Business Clean Up Day
28 February is Schools and Youth Clean Up Day
1 March is Community Clean Up Day

If you can’t make it to one of these day, you can make any day Clean Up day.


Councils in the Barwon South West Region support Clean Up Australia Day in various ways. Contact your local Waste or Sustainability Officer to find out how your council can support your event and remember, anyone can register a site for Clean Up Australia Day.
