Sunday 3 March 2002 is Clean Up Australia Day and Latrobe City Council is calling for Community Groups and individuals to come forward and help clean up Latrobe.

Latrobe City Mayor, Councillor Brendan Jenkins said that he hoped that community spirit would prevail and that the event would be as big a success as it had been in previous years.

"Local businesses have the opportunity to show support for a healthier and cleaner community by setting up waste reduction and recycling programs, and on Friday 1 March, local schools will have the opportunity to enter the ‘Clean Up Australian Schools’ competition," Cr Jenkins said.

"However, it’s the Community groups and individuals that can really make a difference by suggesting a site to be cleaned and getting involved with one of the local Clean Up Australia Day groups."

"Latrobe City Council is acting as a central point of contact for the clean up activities, by providing equipment such as bins, bags and gloves. We can also suggest suitable sites for cleaning and can refer interested citizens to groups already participating in the activities," Cr Jenkins continued.

For those groups who have not yet registered their Clean Up Australia Day activity with Council, telephone Latrobe City’s Community Events Officer, Ashley Creighton, on 1300 367 700.
