Remote Community Clean ups

lolKeep Australia Beautiful WA can help remote communities to clean up litter.

What's the problem?
New and non-traditional products have resulted in increased amounts of packaging coming into remote communities.  The result can be a high level of litter and rubbish in remote communities, which can be a health, safety and environmental hazard.  Download the flyer.

Keep Australia Beautiful WA can: happier

1. Provide resources - gloves, tongs and bags.
2. Raise awareness of litter prevention in your community by holding a workshop, help run a community clean up, carry out a litter audit and help identify major types of litter.
3. Kimberley Bush Ranger groups can engage in a community clean up, conduct an audit and apply for a small grant for their group as part of a Bush Ranger activity.  Funding and program details will be discussed on completion of this form.   
4. Communities can enter the Tidy Towns Sustainable Communties Awards.
