Since the campaign started in 2009 more than 30 thousand volunteers have removed around 1,800 tonnes of rubbish from 813 locations north of the Tropic of Capricorn.
In 2016, 3,656 volunteers removed an estimated 211 ute loads of rubbish from 96 registered sites across northern Western Australia, the Northern Territory and far northern Queensland. This is an increase of 15 locations over 2015, proving yet again that our northern most communities are prepared to donn their gloves and grab a bag more than once a year.
