Gold Coast has been involved in Clean Up Australia Day for almost thirty years. Over the years there has been in excess of 3,000 registered sites and 5,000 tonnages of rubbish collected.
How to get involved on the Gold Coast:
1) Register a clean up site at Clean Up Australia Day website. This can be any area you think requires a clean up; a neighbouring street, a park across the road from work or maybe the grassy strip along your morning walk. If you have any problems registering or choosing a site, get in touch with our Clean Up team at Gecko, and we will help you identify a suitable clean up site for you. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER A SITE.
2) Register as a volunteer on an existing site at Clean Up Australia Day website. You can find a listing online or by giving us a call. CLICK HERE TO JOIN A CLEAN UP SITE.
3) Register a litter hotspot on the Gold Coast and we will promote it for a clean up this Clean Up Australia Day. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER A LITTER HOTSPOT.
4) Spread the word on Social Media, and don’t forget to use the right hashtags; #CleanUpGoldCoast and #CleanUpAustralia!
