7008 Clean Up Sites Registered

Schools Clean Up Day

Since 1992, schools across Australia have got stuck in and made a real difference to their environment and local communities through participating in Schools Clean Up Day.

Over 2100 School sites have been registered so far for 2018. These sites make an immense contribution to the rubbish removed through Clean Up Australia Day. 

Schools Clean Up Day is a fun and engaging way to teach young Australians about the responsible disposal of rubbish, resource recovery and the repercussions of rubbish dumped irresponsibly in the local environment. Not only do we provide schools with a free starter pack of materials, but our website also features a range of learning resources to supplement the hands-on experience of the Clean Up.

Registration is free, quick and easy. Simply:

  1. Pick a site that could do with a Clean Up (such as a park, beach or school yard)
  2. Register your site by providing your details online
  3. Sit back and plan your event while we send you a free starter kit of materials, including bags and gloves.  
  4. Have fun on the day and don't forget to report back to us!

Because when the rubbish is gone, nature can carry on.


While Schools Clean Up Day was officially Friday March 2, you can organise a clean up for any time of the year.

Please Note:

Only pre-schools, primary schools or institutions with Children typically under the age of 12 should register for Schools Clean Up Day. High Schools, TAFEs and Universities need to register for Youth Clean Up. 

All school registrations are private and are not made publically visible online. This means that you will not attract volunteers from outside the school.

To register a site or to be a site supervisor, you must be over the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please ask a teacher/adult to be the site supervisor.
