There's never been a better time to be part of Schools Clean Up Day!

Schools Clean Up Day is aimed at children typically up to the age of 12. We ask that schools with children predominantly above this age to register as a Youth Group. This means that we can send out appropriately sized starter kits which include:

  • Five Rubbish and Recycling bags
  • 4 pairs of gloves for teachers
  • Instructions regarding Online documentation*

Please note that a sharps kit can be included upon request. 

Thanks to our partners, we are able to offer a Clean Up kit free of charge to help get you started. If you need additional materials, such as extra bags, gloves or rubbish pickers, or want to have a look at available merchandise please go to our Clean Up Australia Online Store.

If you are having trouble registering online, feel free to download a pdf of the registration form and send it to us by email [youth@cleanup.com.au], fax [02 9251 6249] or mail [193 Darlinghust rd, Darlinghust 2010 NSW].

Schools Clean Up Learning Resources

Teachers can also educate school students of any age about environmental sustainability using our curriculum resources, previously developed in partnership with Cool Australia. The kit includes lesson plans and resources for teachers themed around Water, Energy, Climate Change, Packaging and Waste and Recycling.

The NSW Department of Education has also updated their Waste learning resources. These have been designed at Primary and Secondary levels and are aligned to both the Australian Curriculum and the NSW Syllabus.
