In 2003 Kyocera adopted Brush Farm Park in North Ryde as their Business Clean Up Day site.
This valley had been used for many years as an illegal dumping ground and was over run with weeds.
The team at Kyocera have returned to the site every Business Clean Up Day for four years and have removed tonnes of rubbish from the site including car body parts and building material.
Kyocera's clean ups have supported work by local volunteers, lead by Peter Brown, to restore the valley to its former healthy and beautiful state.
Kyocera's work at Brush Farm Park is an excellent example of business working with the local community to achieve great things for the environment.
"The Inland Fisheries Service (IFS) conducted a corporate clean up at two locations - Craigbourne Dam and Woods Lake.
Two teams spent all day on site and collected two large trailer loads of rubbish - some of which had been on site for many years. This was a rewarding experience for our staff and was greatly appreciated by the governing bodies that own the land at the two sites. We were sure that the anglers will appreciate the efforts in maintaining these two popular recreational fisheries.
The IFS is committed to participating again next year and hopefully expanding our efforts to include angling and volunteer organisations."

"RACQ conducted several clean up sites through their regional branches registering and getting involved. In addition they conduct a car battery collection drive enabling individuals to drop off old car batteries for recycling. 1200 batteries were collected and recycled as part of their Clean Up Australia Day activities."
