Clean Up Australia Day 2012 – Point Cook Locations

Recently, there has been a lot of “noise” from many Point Cook residents and media attention regarding the amount of rubbish that is being dumped on nature strips, vacant blocks of land, building sites and as part of our beautiful waterways and open park lands.  Well, why not group together and do something productive about it?

Clean Up Australia Day is on again Sunday 4 March 2012.  This event provides the perfect opportunity for the community to pull together and re-establish some neighborhood pride in our beloved Point Cook, whilst at the same time meeting some other residents.  It is great to see that already three of our residents have taken it upon themselves to setup Clean Up Australia Day sites within Point Cook.  The sites and the residents that should be commended are as follows:

Persons interested in  supporting this great cause should click on one of the above links and select either “join this site” or “donate now”.  On each of the site pages you will find the details of the start and finish times, meeting points and contact details for the Site Coordinators so you can contact them directly for further details.

It is good to see that some of the sites already have volunteers, but the numbers are quite low at present and they desperately require many more Point Cook residents to volunteer if they are to make a significant improvement on the day.

The Clean Up Australia Day campaign is not restricted to the one day and public spaces, with the following events being organised as part of the campaign:

If you are unable to support any of the above campaigns, why not use this event as a good excuse to give your house or property the once over and make use of the many options available within Wyndham City for the removal of rubbish.

So what are you waiting for?  Head to the Clean Up Australia Day website and register your involvement for one of the Point Cook clean up sites. Come back here once you have registered and let us know where you will be on the day, and please share this information with other Point Cook Residents so that we can get as many people as possible involved in this great community event.
