Community invited to get involved in Clean Up Australia Day
Greater Bendigo residents can lend a helping hand at six local sites on Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday March 6, 2022.
Clean Up Australia Day sites are located in Axedale, Long Gully Creek, Lake Eppalock, Huntly and two on the Bendigo Creek in Kangaroo Flat and White Hills
Greater Bendigo Mayor Cr Andrea Metcalf said Clean Up Australia Day continues to be an important community event in Greater Bendigo.
“I encourage everyone to help clean up our beautiful landscape and creeks, better yet, let’s make sure rubbish doesn’t end up there in the first place,” Cr Metcalf said.
