Eurobodalla Sparkles After Clean Ups

Volunteers rolled up their sleeves in search of litter and rubbish over the weekend.

More than 250 volunteers took part in Clean Up Australia Day across 50 Eurobodalla community and school sites.

Project officer Maree Cadman said students and teachers of 11 schools cleaned up public areas on Friday.

“We saw amazing cleanups by kids at Moruya’s North Head, Shelly Beach, Surf Beach Narooma, Pilot Headland Narooma, Sunshine Bay Cove and North Broulee Beach,” Ms Cadman said.

On Sunday, volunteers continued to collected rubbish at beaches, roadsides, creek lines, cycleways, and estuaries.

“Groups reported less rubbish this year, with common items being cigarette butts and recyclables,” Ms Cadman said.

Council’s waste team will pick up 116 bags of rubbish from cleanup sites plus an additional 30 cubic metres of bulky items.

“It’s always rewarding to hear how much rubbish was rescued from our waterways and bushlands, leaving our public areas sparkling once again,” Ms Cadman said.

“Together we can make a difference every day – not just Clean Up Australia Day – to pick up stray pieces of litter whenever you spot it.”

For anyone coordinating a cleanup separate to Clean Up Australia Day, Ms Cadman said Council has tools to help.
