Clean Up Australia Day

Clean Up Australia Day is Australia's largest annual community-based environmental event.

Each year thousands of volunteers collect rubbish from parks, waterways, nature reserves and bushland across Australia.

Register a site for 2017

Registrations are now open for Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday 5 March 2017.

This is an opportunity to take a look around your local area - your streets, parks, sporting grounds, reserves and waterways to find those litter hotspots that need attention and register a local site for 2017.

If you do register a site for Clean Up Australia Day you must do it at least 2 weeks before the event. Clean Up Australia will send you a pack of materials including bags, gloves and other equipment directly by post, but it can take up to 2 weeks for these to arrive.

To register a site, visit Clean Up Australia Day or call 1800 CUA DAY (1800 282 329). If you require Council to collect the rubbish you will need to contact Council after you have registered the site with Clean Up Australia Day.

You can also register to volunteer at a registered site in your neighbourhood on the Clean Up Australia Day website. 

Council and Clean Up Australia Day

Council will collect the rubbish that volunteers pick up on Clean Up Australia Day. You must contact Council to organise a pick up location after you have registered your site.
