Community Clean Ups
Make a difference in your neighbourhood
Do you have unsightly litter in your local area and want to do something about it? Then organise a community cleanup or consider the Adopt-a-Spot community clean up program.
Getting involved in a cleanup is easy and can be fun and rewarding for you and your friends and family. If everyone looks after their local area, it will have a significant effect on the Western Australian environment as a whole.
By doing regular cleanups you will play an active role in keeping your nominated area tidy in a more sustainable way. While one-off cleanups are effective in removing litter, keeping an area litter-free is proven to act as a deterrent to litter.
Register your one off clean up via our online form and you will be supplied with resources including bags and gloves.
See more on the Adopt-a-Spot program and a longer term commitment to your clean up site.
Thank you for your efforts in keeping your community beautiful.
Clean-ups on roadsides
Because roadsides are a high risk area for litter collection, permission must be given to proceed by local governments and Main Roads WA in some circumstances. Each clean-up request will be reviewed by Keep Australia Beautiful staff and the requesting individual or group will be advised of the suitability of the site.
Keep Australia Beautiful has a partnership with Main Roads WA (MRWA) to support volunteer groups in the regions to clean up on roads managed by MRWA. Adopters must be covered by KAB insurance and MRWA must give approval before a clean-up can commence. As part of the approval the volunteer group supervisor must undergo a safety induction. Note: roads under the jurisdiction of MRWA in the metropolitan area are considered high risk and permission will not be granted for clean-ups. Read more on the process for approval.
