CLEAN Up Australia Day is on Sunday.

The annual event will see the community out in force across our towns picking up rubbish and making the towns a cleaner place.

Businesses were down at Echuca’s Aquatic Reserve on Tuesday for Business Clean Up Day and schools will be out today for the Schools/Youth Clean Up Day.

There are a number of registered Clean Up Australia Day events planned for Sunday.

“We encourage all Campaspe residents to take action to help reduce the many tonnes of litter that is choking our land and waterways each year by volunteering for 2018 Clean Up Australia Day,” Campaspe Shire mayor Adrian Weston said.
