Everyone is welcome to join and the day provides a great opportunity to get to know more people from your community and make a real difference.

Registration is free and covers participants under Clean Up Australia Day’s public liability insurance.

Sunshine Coast Council environment portfolio councilor Maria Suarez, who will join Coolum, said Clean Up Australia Day was a reminder to respect and love our environment where we live.

“Many of us choose to live on the Sunshine Coast because of its beautiful natural environment – keeping it clean helps it stay that way,” Cr Suarez said.

“The Council is proudly supporting the event through the Waste 2 Resource Education Programme, helping groups organize their events and arranging for the rubbish to be picked up.

“And we are grateful to the many wonderful groups and individuals who participate in and lead our region’s clean-up activities, both on Clean Up Australia Day and throughout the year.

“Every year they do an amazing job helping the council realize its vision of a sustainable region, and I thank all the volunteers for being so generous with their time.”

Cr Suarez said the momentous event was also a reminder that every day was clean-up day.

“Picking up even just one piece of litter can make a real difference,” Cr Suarez said.

“A clean, sustainable Sunshine Coast is in our hands.
