Students across Australia got involved with “Clean Up Australia Day” including those from 12 schools in the Eurobodalla Shire in New South Wales.
Local Coordinator, Maree Cadman, said the focus for students was clean-up sites outside school grounds; beaches and reserves, skateparks and BMX tracks. There were more than 200 people involved in the efforts.
“Last year we had around 160 people on the day,” Ms Cadman said. “It’s great to see people moving on from the fires and giving up their time to get our shire back to its lovely best.”
In total across the Eurobodalla Shire sites, volunteers collected 193 bags of rubbish and an additional 16 cubic metres in bulky items.
