Sunday marks this year’s Clean Up Australia Day, with clean up events taking place across Campaspe Shire, including in Kyabram and Tongala.
Volunteers are wanted to join many thousands across Australia who will be helping to clean up their local areas.
Campaspe Shire’s environment and waste spokesman Cr Greg Toll said volunteering a few hours could make a difference and reduce the threat of pollution to the environment.
‘‘Clean Up Australia Day is the perfect opportunity for everyone to come together and help clean up our local parks and waterways and think about how we can reduce our impact on the environment,’’ Cr Toll said.
Kyabram’s Clean Up Australia Day will be co-ordinated from Memorial Gardens, Allan St, while the Tongala event will begin at Soundshell Park, Mangan St.
Volunteers are asked to meet at their chosen site and bring water, gloves, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunglasses and sunscreen.
Both clean ups start at 10
Some schools across the district will host their own Clean Up Australia Day events on Friday.
