Help keep Wollondilly beautiful on Clean Up Australia Day

Wollondilly is home to some of Macarthur's most beautiful natural resources.

And residents will have the chance to keep some of these areas in tip top shape on Clean Up Australia Day (Sunday, March 1).

There are a number of sites in the shire where residents are taking part in the event this year including Razorback, Douglas Park, Mermaids Pool and Yanderra and Wilton Public Schools.

Wollondilly Council has supported Clean Up Australia Day for more than 10 years.

Wollondilly mayor Matthew Deeth said the council was once again encouraging residents, schools and businesses to get involved.

"Clean Up Australia Day is a great opportunity to take a look around your local area - your streets, parks, sportsgrounds, bush land and waterways - to find those rubbish hotspots that need attention and register a local site for special attention," he said.

"Volunteers play a valuable role in helping to reduce the impact of waste on our natural areas and our townships."

Community members can get involved by either running their own event or getting involved in events that have already been registered across the Shire.

Wollondilly Council can provide support for clean up events through providing things like gloves, bags and also picking up and disposing of the waste that is collected.
