This year marks the 20th anniversary of Clean Up Australia Day and the Maroondah Journal has highlighted the community’s efforts for this event:

Mayor Alex Makin reminded helpers to keep safe by wearing sturdy footwear, gloves, sunscreen and a hat, and by bringing refreshments and a rubbish bag or bucket.

Clean Up Australia Day will be held on Sunday the 7th of March between 9.30 to 11.30 am. Council nominating two sites within Maroondah; Croydon Wetlands in Norton Road and the Dandenong Creek in Heathmont.

“The Maroondah community has always shown strong support for Clean Up Australia Day, and we value the many volunteers who keep coming back to help clean our parks, reserves and roadsides.”

Community groups are also able to register clean up sites by visiting www.cleanup.org.au.
