ONLY 5 WEEKS TO GO TO CLEAN UP AUSTRALIA DAY 2010

Only 5 weeks to go to Clean Up Australia Day 2010 register for your local area now!

Media Release - 28 January 2010  

Clean Up Australia Day is urging Australians to register for the 2010 event and help double the number of registered sites in their local area. With just over 5 weeks to go, it’s time to mobilize your family and friends to join your local community and pull on some gloves on Clean Up Australia Day – Sunday, 7 March.

“Now is a crucial time for Australians to get behind their local community and do their bit by registering for Clean Up Australia Day 2010. We really need your support to help make this our biggest year yet,” says Ian Kiernan, AO, founder of Clean Up Australia Day.

This year there’s an even greater reason to participate, with Clean Up Australia Day celebrating its 20th national anniversary. Twenty years ago, Ian Kiernan 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.

“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.
