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 sustainabllity@cairns.qld.gov.au
