Bag loads of success for Kowanyama clean up day

Date posted: 13 January 2012

The latest edition of the Koori mail (11 January 2012) reports that an Aboriginal Shire Council in Cape York has had great success with its first community 'clean up day'.

More than 250 bags of rubbish were collected as part of the successful event.

Kowanyama Aboriginal Shire Council (KASC) organised the day, which was supported by 60 locals including members of the KASC, Kowanyama Rural Operations Group and Kowanyama State School.

Funded through a partnership between the KASC and the Australian Food and Grocery Council's Packaging Stewardship Forum (PSF), the 'clean up day' was part of a wider town beautification and litter reduction project being implemented through theĀ Clean up book, a self-help guide for communities on how to reduce litter and increase recycling.
