The Great Northern Clean Up provides communities the flexibility to participate in local Clean Up events between August & October each year. Register a clean up online
In 2023, Council will be aligning with the Great Northern Clean-up day on 16 – 18 September.
Our region often experiences hot and humid weather in early March, and last year’s Clean Up Australia day on Sunday 6 March coincided with a heatwave event. The regions north of the Tropic of Capricorn have been participating in the Great Northern Clean Up since 2009, and aligning with the Great Northern Clean Up enables participation in cooler months reducing fatigue, heat and dehydration risks to participants.
The community are still welcome to create their own Clean Up event in March via the Clean Up Australia Day website, however they will be responsible for the disposal of waste to one of the regions waste facilities.
Council sincerely appreciates the communities ongoing support of Clean Up efforts in the Gladstone region and hope that people will be able to register a site for the Great Northern Clean Up event in September.
Further details regarding the Great Northern Clean Up will be provided closer to the date.
