Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE coun­cil is call­ing on the com­mu­nity to lend a hand to keep the re­gion beau­ti­ful by reg­is­ter­ing for Clean Up Aus­tralia Day.

Cr Judy Pe­ters said it took a whole-of-com­mu­nity ap­proach to make Clean Up Aus­tralia Day suc­cess­ful.

“Coun­cil is ap­peal­ing to ev­ery­one to help to clean up our lo­cal parks, beaches, bush­lands and streets this Clean Up Aus­tralia Day,” Cr Pe­ters said.

“Whether you are a res­i­dent, a busi­ness, or­gan­i­sa­tion or school, if ev­ery­one chips in we can make a dif­fer­ence.

“By reg­is­ter­ing your in­ter­est to par­tic­i­pate, coun­cil can pro­vide you with ad­di­tional gloves and bags needed.”

All reg­is­tra­tions for sites are to be made on the Clean Up Aus­tralia Day web­site – cleanu­paus­trali­a­day.org.au – or by phon­ing 1800 282 329.

In­ter­ested par­ties can reg­is­ter a site or vol­un­teer at an ex­ist­ing site.

Cr Vince Haber­mann said the coun­cil would also sup­port res­i­dents and groups who reg­is­tered for the day by pick­ing up the rub­bish col­lected.

“By work­ing to­gether we will get the rub­bish off of our streets, beaches and park­lands and into coun­cil’s waste fa­cil­i­ties where it be­longs.” Events in­clude:

Clean Up Busi­ness Day – Tues­day, March 1
