The Great Northern Clean Up is a chance for communities across the top end of Australia (north of the Tropic of Capricorn) to get together and take part in Clean Up Day at a time more suited to the northern climate.
Thank you to everyone who participated in Clean Up Australia Day 2013!
No matter if you want to clean up your local environment or want to green up your office, your business can get involved in Clean Up Every Day.
The event inspires students to learn about their environment and contribute to their local community. It's a day when students and teachers work together to clean up a site significant to them.
As well as participating in the flagship Clean Up Australia Day event held on the first Sunday in March, we encourage communities, schools and businesses to organise their own Clean Up Day events at any time of the year.
Dumping rubbish is illegal. In 2011 Clean Up Australia is focusing our efforts on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria - a beautiful part of Australia. The event was held on Sunday 20 November 2011.
