Schools Clean Up Day

Since 1992, school communities across Australia have demonstrated their support for caring for the environment through participating in Schools Clean Up Day. 

All year round Schools Clean Up

Your School can participate by simply following these easy steps:

  • Register your School's Clean Up site*
  • Receive your School's Clean Up Kit and read the Site Guide for information on how to prepare your event.
  • Tell your students and staff about your Clean Up Day - access our resource centre for ideas on how to promote your event.
  • Have fun on the day and don't forget to report back to us!

* Please Note: all School Sites registered are marked as private and details are not placed online. This means that you will not attract volunteers from outside the school. To register a Site and be a Site Supervisor you need to be at least 18 years of age. If you are younger than 18, ask a teacher/adult to be the site supervisor.
