North Burnett cleans up

SUNDAY is Clean Up Australia Day, a day where community groups across this wide brown land band together to combat the scourge of litter.

Bruce Serisier, from Mundubbera Lions, says he has been participating in the day for as long as he can remember.

"It reinforces what the right thing to do is,” he said.

The Lions will be hosting their Clean Up Australia Day from 7am in Bicentennial Park. Water, gloves and bags will be provided. Bring sunscreen and a hat.

The clean-up will be followed by a free sausage sizzle.

No registration is required.

Mr Serisier said they had about 30 attend last year's clean-up and he was hoping to better that this year.

Contact Mr Serisier on 0428769224 for more information.

Rotary will be co-ordinating the clean-up in Gayndah.

They are meeting at 7am in Lions Park on Anzac Pde and will end with a free sausage sizzle.

All are welcome.

Contact Dael Giddins on 0475006544 for more information.

Mrs Giddins says she is hoping for about 20 participants.

She is a 25-year veteran of Clean Up Australia Day.

Mrs Giddins says it's important to stress you don't need council's support for the clean-up, or even necessarily to have organised something.

Just grab a garbage bag and go.

And in Biggenden, the PCYC Emergency Services cadets will be responsible for their clean-up.

They are starting at 7.30am in Beiers Park and finishing off with a sausage sizzle at the Men's Shed at 10.30am.

All are welcome.

Rotary Monto is not holding an event this year, but will look to get back into the swing of it next year.

Biggenden State School and Mount Perry State School are today hosting their clean-ups.

This year marks the 29th event, and the first without founder Ian Kiernan AO, who passed away late last year.
