Great Northern Clean Up

Cairns residents are encouraged to join September's Great Northern Clean Up.

Cairns Regional Council supports the Great Northern Clean Up (Northern Australia’s version of Clean up Australia Day) through community promotion and the collection of rubbish bags at pre-arranged pick up points.

Participants receive clean up resources, including bags and gloves, from Clean Up Australia Day and Council provides support by arranging pick-up of litter bags and additional resources.

Participants also have the chance to win one of two double passes to the outer Great Barrier Reef, thanks to Reef Magic and Passions of Paradise.

Simply post a clean-up photo from a registered clean-up site to the ECOevents Cairns Facebook page to be in the running.
