Great Northern Clean Up

Join the crew near you this September

Council is hosting community clean ups across the city during September to help clean up our parks, beaches and public areas before the monsoon rains arrive.  

It's so easy to get involved - simply visit the Great Northern Clean Up website to find a site near you. All ages are welcome to take part, and site coordinators will provide Clean Up kits for you to use on the day!

You can also register your own site (must be over 18 years), so why not get your school, community group or business involved?

Every September 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. Support provided by Council includes:

  • Planning and Environment: provides a single point of contact for community and school enquiries and
    identification of pick-up points.
  • Infrastructure Services: a collection of rubbish at pick-up points.
  • Water and Waste: free entry to waste and recycling facilities.

Note: Council will also provide clean up resources (e.g. bags and gloves) for school clean-up events held at any time of year. For more information email sustainability@cairns.qld.gov.au
