Every year, hundreds of thousands of Australians help clean up their local environment on Clean Up Australia Day. It's fun, easy and everyone can take part. Individuals and local groups can either organise a Clean Up site or volunteer to join an existing site.
Australians are the among the highest producers of waste, per person, in the world with an estimated 7 billion cigarette butts ending up in Australian waterways, streets and parklands each year.
Clean Up Australia Day is held on the first Sunday in March each year.
It is essential to wear appropriate clothing including a hat and gloves, and don't forget your sunscreen.
In 2015 Clean Up Australia day will be held on Sunday 1 March 2015. Details on how you can get involved will be posted here closer to the date.
