Thanks for your help, Ju­lat­ten vol­un­teers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS | OPINION -

Last Sun­day on ‘Clean Up Aus­tralia Day’ 13 Ju­lat­ten lo­cals worked on the top look­out for an hour and a half re­mov­ing 30 bags of trash plus 22 tyres. Over­all 98 bags of rub­bish plus wash­ing ma­chines, mi­crowaves, bat­ter­ies, car parts and bags of tele­phone di­rec­to­ries were col­lected.

I would like to thank those folk that “did the dirty work” not­ing the gross lack of sup­port of res­i­dents means that they don’t see the trash that lines this beau­ti­ful Wet Trop­ics high­way.

If in­deed they do see the trash they must be proud of it.

Any are wel­come to or­gan­ise the next clean up in March 2018 as af­ter six years I have of­fi­cially retired from the project.

I would like to es­pe­cially ex­press thanks to Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil for their “on the ground” sup­port.

The clean up on the road to Ju­lat­ten last year.
