‘Let’s get cleaning’ is the rallying call to Canberrans from Shadow Environment Minister Leanne Castley in the lead up to Clean Up Australia Day.
“Last year about 17,000 Canberrans joined Clean Up Australia events, removing more than 300 truckloads of rubbish from our parks, waterways, roadsides and school grounds,” Ms Castley said.
“I would love to beat that figure this year and urge Canberrans to join me in cleaning the environment we value so much in our bush capital.
“What a fantastic achievement that would be, mobilising as clean-up crusaders to improve our nature parks and green spaces, neighbourhoods and walking paths.
“Clean Up Australia Day is a fantastic initiative that brings together our community to focus on practical solutions to help protect our environment," Ms Castley concluded.
