Remote community clean ups

Keep Australia Beautiful Council can help remote communities to clean up litter.

What's the problem?

New and non-traditional products have resulted in increased amounts of packaging coming into remote communities. The result can be a high level of litter and rubbish in remote communities, which can be a health, safety and environmental hazard. Download the flyer.

We can 

  • Provide resources - gloves, tongs and bags.
  • Raise awareness of litter prevention in your community by holding a workshop, help run a community clean up, carry out a litter audit and help identify major types of litter.
  • Kimberley Bush Ranger groups can engage in a community clean up, conduct an audit and apply for a small grant for their group as part of a Bush Ranger activity. Funding and program details will be discussed on completion of our enquiry form.   
  • Communities can enter the Tidy Towns Sustainable Communities Awards.  

Clean up resources

The 'Clean up' book is a resource that details how to prevent and reduce litter.  With this program, the community can target reducing litter by about 20% per year.  

Changing habits takes time. 

The Clean up book has information on how to start and sustain a program that will see a change in littering behaviour and attitude in your community.

Keep Australia Beautiful's Clean up community resources can help you make a difference to litter in your community.
