Get ready to done the gloves and pick up the rubbish on Clean Up Australia day | Hunter Valley News

With Clean up Australia Day coming up on Sunday, March 6, I’m encouraging businesses, schools and community groups to get involved and register your own clean up.

You can register a clean up online at and be sent a free starter kit that contains bags, gloves and everything you need to create a safe, fun and effective Clean Up. Getting involved in Clean Up Australia Day is a great way to look after our country and the community we live in.

If you have chemicals at home that you aren’t sure how to dispose of, bring them along to the Merriwa waste management facility on Saturday, January 29 to drop them off for free at the Household Chemical CleanOut event.

The event will run from 9am to 3.30pm and community members can dispose of a variety of household chemicals including paint, garden chemicals, poisons, batteries, pool chemicals, motor oils, fluids and fuels, fluoro lights, gas bottles, fire extinguishers and smoke detectors.
