Clean Up Australia Day

​More than 80 people will take to the water this Clean-up Australia Day (Sunday 5 March) to scour the Georges River for rubbish.

The Canoe Journey, now in its 13th year, is led by members of the Hume Region Water Team. It starts at Como, in the Sutherland Shire, and finishes at Monash Reserve in East Hills in the Georges River National Park.

Coordinator, Neville Austin, said the team is proud of how the initiative has grown.

"We started off with around 10 scouts, now we have more than 80 people taking part," Mr Austin said.

"It’s more than just picking up rubbish. It’s about education and showing the volunteers how to correctly dispose of rubbish to keep our environment clean.

"Some of our younger volunteers are staggered when they see things like fridges in the Georges River."

City of Canterbury Bankstown Administrator, Richard Colley, said the Hume Region Water Team will be one of more than 70 groups expected to take part in this year’s Clean-up Australia Day.

"Last year, our volunteers collected more than four tonnes of rubbish and in excess of 700 kilograms of recyclable goods," Mr Colley said.

"This is a whole of community effort where people can make a real difference, so I encourage all residents to consider taking part and play a role in caring for their environment."

The City of Canterbury Bankstown provides clean-up bags and disposes of the collected rubbish.
