This Sunday is Clean Up Australia Day. Clean Up Australia Day is now the nation's largest community-based environmental event
For over 30 years, this event helps Australians take practical environmental action to step up to support solutions which move us towards a circular economy – where everything is a resource, and there is no such thing as waste.
Australians produce 540kg of household waste per person, each year.
Of the estimated 67 million tonnes of waste Australians generated in 2017, just 37 was recycled, leaving 21.7 disposed of in landfill.
It's estimated about 130,000 tonnes of Australian plastic ends up in our waterways and oceans each year.
If you havent registered yet, you can still join a clean up group in the region.
There are over 30 groups registered in the Spencer Gulf.
