Remote Community Clean ups
Keep Australia Beautiful Council 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 Council can:
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.
The 'clean up' book
is a resource that details how to prevent and reduce litter. With this program, the community can target reducing litter by about 20% per year.
Changing habits takes time. The Clean up book has information on how to start and sustain a program that will see a change in littering behaviour and attitude in your community.
Keep Australia Beautiful's Clean up Community resources can help you make a difference to litter in your community.
Fill in the form
and we will be in touch.
Communities are reducing litter and making a positive difference.
