Urge all to get involved in Clean Up Australia efforts

THE Bulldogs have joined Canterbury Bankstown Council to tackle litter and encourage residents to join Australia’s biggest clean-up campaign.

More than 70 clean-up sites will be targeted by eager volunteers this Clean Up Australia Day, including schools, businesses, river foreshores and parklands.
Locals can also roll up their sleeves and join the clean-up team at more than 30 locations open to the community on Sunday, March 3.
Mayor Bilal El-Hayek urged residents not to watch from the sidelines and to get involved.
“I encourage everyone to pull out your gloves, find a clean-up site near you and play your part in keeping our City clean,” Mayor El-Hayek said.
“We’re lucky to have a range of amazing natural assets in Canterbury Bankstown, from rivers and wetlands to some fantastic parks and bushland.
“Keeping these areas beautiful is a team effort so they can be enjoyed for generations to come.
“That’s why we’re supporting Clean Up Australia Day again this year.”
Last year, Canterbury Bankstown volunteers collected 80 kilograms of rubbish on Clean Up Australia Day.
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs CEO Aaron Warburton said they were pleased to join the clean-up effort this year.
“Clean Up Australia Day is an important initiative and we’re glad to join forces with the council to spread the message,” Mr Warburton said.
“It really does take a team to keep our City clean. We’ll be getting our hands dirty to help clean up the community and hope that residents join the cause.”
