THE call has gone out for Frankston residents to get together and keep the streets clean as part of this year’s Clean Up Australia Australia Day next month.

Residents can register to take part in three events: the Business Clean Up Day on Tuesday 1 March, the Schools Clean Up Day on Friday 4 March and the Community Clean Up Day on Sunday 6 March.

“Frankston was named Keep Australia Beautiful’s Sustainable City of the Year for a great many reasons, including the huge number of community members who get involved in environmental activities and friends groups in our city,”  Mayor Cr James Dooley said.

“Clean Up Australia Day is a great event that gives us all a great excuse to meet, roll up our sleeves and get involved in clean-up activities across the city.”

“Whether you’re a business, a school or a community group, you’re encouraged to register to run a collection site as part in this event. And if you just want to lend a hand, feel free to join in with a group who have already signed up their site, such as the Kananook Creek Association.”

See cleanupaustraliaday.org.au or call 1800 282 329 for further information.
