29 bags, one TV and small power poll

By: Michael Fox

Sunday 2nd March CleanUP Australia

Thanks to coordinator Kerstie Olsson we had a record turn out of approximately 60 volunteers (which included two Scout groups) and collected twenty-nine bags of rubbish (half recycling), a large TV, several pieces of wooden furniture and a small power pole from the top of the mountain, the walking tracks and down the road.

The main issue was broken glass, fast food wrappers and dumping large rubbish.


I led a group of Cub Scouts down Acacia Way and Geebung Track.

Not a lot of rubbish but we did see a pair of Rainbow Lorikeets Trichoglossus haematodus emerge from a nest hollow, a pair of Galahs Eolophus roseicapillus as well as butterflies and bugs.
