Volunteers across Hunters Hill stepped up to clean up for Australia’s largest community-based environmental event.

Clean Up Australia Day was held in Gladesville Reserve, Riverglade Reserve, Woolwich Baths and Boronia Park on Sunday 7 March 2021.

Twenty eight (28) volunteers including local scouts covered all around Gladesville Reserve, Betts Park, Huntleys Point Road and Victoria Road adjoining Riverside Girls High. They collected 16 bags of mixed waste materials and 4 bags of recyclable containers/bottles.

The Tarban Creek Cleaner-Uppers – 17 volunteers – covered all around Riverglade Reserve, from the UNSW Rowing Club, to Manning Road and beyond, even the creek itself out to the harbour. They collected 11 bags of mixed waste materials and 6 bags of recyclable containers/bottles.

Woolwich Baths had 8 adults and 16 kids – in total they collected three (3) 20-litre bags of rubbish and stabilised an embankment. Two (2) bags of recyclables were collected at Boronia Park.

Total rubbish collected was less than in previous years. Organisers noted that supermarket plastic bag bans and the container recycling schemes appear to have been big successes, with far fewer of each of these items collected this year.

Hunter’s Hill Council wishes to thank all the volunteers who pick up rubbish regularly, as well as those participating in Clean Up events.
