Clean Up Australia Day 2024 is approaching and the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA) is calling councils and local governments to action.
ALGA has invited local governments and communities to once again roll up their sleeves and participate in Clean Up Australia Day 2024, on Sunday 3 March.
This year marks the 35th Clean Up Australia Day, the country’s largest community-based environmental event.
Every year, hundreds of councils participate in many ways, providing support to their communities by:
- Removing litter from registered sites
- Hosting and running council-led events
- Reviewing local registrations to ensure they are safe
- Promoting events through various channels, producing signage, galvanising local media and leveraging community networks
Key dates this year include Business Clean Up Day on Tuesday 27 February, Schools Clean Up Day on Friday 1 March and Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday 3 March.
