Clean Up Australia Day

Published: 14 February 2022

Cardinia Shire residents, businesses and schools are encouraged to sign up for this year’s Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday 6 March.

Cardinia Shire Major Councillor Jeff Springfield said with 24.5 cubic meters of rubbish collected and removed from our community last year, it is an important community event to help protect and conserve our local environment.  

“I encourage everyone to gather your friends and family and get involved this year,” Cr Springfield said.  

“You can find a local park, reserve or walking track and register as new ‘clean up’ site or sign up to attend a local spot already registered on the Clean Up Australia Day website.” 

All Cardinia Shire residents who register a site will receive a free clean-up kit including bags and gloves.  

Cardinia Shire will also assist with the collection and disposal of all rubbish collected on the day. 

This national event started in 1990. Since then, over 19 million Australians have donated their time as part of Clean Up Australia Day activities over the last 30 years.  

Schools and local businesses can sign up for Business Clean Up Day on Tuesday 2 March and Schools Clean Up Day on Friday 5 March.
