Spring cleaning coming to Emerald

Scenes from clean-ups past.

Clean up Australia has now launched The Great Northern Clean Up to accommodate communities in the hotter regions!

Central Highlands Regional Council is proud to join the new event on Sunday 11 September 2022 in Emerald.

Just like in the past, the council will host a family fun day of litter collection, followed by a free sausage sizzle and activities.

“It was unfortunate we had to postpone Clean Up Australia Day back in March because of COVID-19, but keeping our community healthy is our top priority,” Mayor Kerry Hayes said

“And now that there is an option to participate in September, we can enjoy the great springtime weather as we clean up.”

The Great Northern Clean Up will replace council’s Clean Up Australia Day event and will be annually held in September for Central Highlanders.

Registration begins at 8am at the western entrance of the Emerald Botanic Gardens (next to McIndoe Park).

Litter collection will run from 8am to 10am at various designated areas followed by a celebratory barbeque until midday.

Participants will receive a clean-up kit, including bags for recycling and general waste.

Participants are advised to being their own sun safety protection and appropriate footwear.
