Clean-up begins across the city this Sunday

By March 1, 2019 News

This weekend’s Clean Up Australia Day effort will be spread across four sites in Orange.

Orange Mayor Reg Kidd is calling on everyone, of every age to join in, pick up some rubbish and afterwards grab a free barbecue and help keep Orange beautiful.

“I’d love it if we could get kids and their parents and grandparents to join us on a great family day out where you know you are doing something great for the environment,” Cr Kidd said.

The volunteers who will spend the morning of March 3, 2019 picking up rubbish on roadsides, along water ways and in open spaces will be among hundreds of thousands of people across Australia taking part in the national clean-up.

Orange City Council’s Tidy Towns Committee Chair Kevin Duffy said four sites had been chosen for this year’s event.

“There’s four sites around Orange to make it more accessible for everyone,” Cr Duffy said.

Registration is at 10am for Elephant Park, Hill Park at Carriage Cottage in Spring Street and The Mud Hut at Clifton Grove and registration is at 9am at Rotary Park.

Wearing long sleeved clothing and closed toed shoes is best on the day and bags, gloves and sunscreen will be provided.

A barbecue lunch and drinks will be provided at all sites except Rotary Park.
