CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY 2010 CALL FOR REGISTRATIONS

Clean Up Australia Day 2010 call for registrations make a difference in your community

Registrations for Clean Up Australia Day 2010 are now open, so it’s time to start mobilizing your family and friends to join your local community and don some cleaning gloves next March, 2010 to help make it the most successful year yet. This year there’s an even greater reason to participate, with Clean Up Australia Day celebrating its 20th national anniversary.

2010 marks an incredible 20 years since Ian Kiernan AO, founder of Clean Up Australia Day, launched the event around Australia urging people to make a difference by cleaning up their local areas for a couple of hours. Since then, his simple idea has evolved to be Australia’s largest community-based environmental event. In 2009 alone, almost 630,000 volunteers participated and 7,000 sites were registered for Clean Up Australia Day.

 “We’re aiming to make 2010 Clean Up Australia Day’s biggest year yet, so help us achieve this by registering to take part in your local area,” says Ian Kiernan.

“Clean Up Australia Day is a fantastic, fun event where everyone in the local community can come together and pick up rubbish to conserve the environment. Just one piece of rubbish can make a difference and ensure your favourite local beaches and parks stay clean for the future,” Kiernan added.
