Clean Up Australia Day

Why not make 2021 the year that you step up to clean up?

Clean Up Australia Day is Australia's largest annual national community-based litter clean up event.

Clean Up Australia Day is Sunday 7 March 2021.

While this year's Clean Up may look a little different, we are still encouraging residents to get involved and register a site. As always, your safety and the safety of our wider community is our number one priority.

Clean Up Australia Day has launched a new set of COVID-19 guidelines. This includes limiting the number of volunteers allowed on site and the introduction of a QR code for paper free sign-ins.

So step up to clean up and register a Clean Up Australia Day site today.

Join us on Sunday 7 March at one of these registered sites:

  • Kotara Train Station, Kotara 8am - noon
  • Birdwood Park, Newcastle West 9am - 10.30am
  • Stockton Sandspit, Stockton (meet at carpark under Stockton side of Stockton Bridge) 8am - 1pm
  • Lambton Ker-rai Creek, Lambton Park Playground 9am - 11am
  • Minmi Road, Maryland 9am - 11am
