August 8 2017: Join the Great Northern Clean Up
The Great Northern Clean Up is on again and Cassowary Coast Regional Council is calling for volunteers who want to nominate a site and supervise its clean-up.
Clean-ups will be held throughout September, with the main effort planned for 16 and 17 September.
Council is specifically looking for people who are interested in sites in and around Tully, Kurrimine Beach, Cardwell and Innisfail.
Individuals, schools and businesses are encouraged to call Cassowary Coast Regional Council's Robert Nutt on 1300 763 903 if they are interested in nominating and running a clean-up site or if they want to get involved in an event.
The Great Northern Clean Up is a Clean Up Australia Day event that has been tailored to northern communities. It is held at a time that is better suited to the north of Australia, in the lead-up to wet season.
