Great Northern Clean Up 2015

September was the month of the 2015 Great Northern Clean Up.

The Great Northern Clean Up takes place at a time of year which is more suitable for those of you living in the tropical North. The event is also timed to occur just before the wet season and after the tourist season to help prevent rubbish being swept into our creeks, rivers, lakes and ravines.

Since the campaign started in 2009 a total of 26,398 volunteers have removed around 1,583.7 tonnes of rubbich from 717 sites north of the Tropic of Capricorn.

In 2015 an estimated 2,530 volunteers removed an estimated 196 tonnes of rubbish from 81 registered sites across northern Western Australia, the Northern Territory and far northern Queensland.
