Get ready to put on the gloves and pick up the litter on Clean Up Australia Day | Hunter Valley News

As Sunday 6th March is Clean up Australia Day I encourage businesses, schools and community groups to get involved and register your own clean up campaign.

You can register a cleaning online at and receive a free starter kit with bags, gloves and everything you need for a safe, fun and effective clean. Attending Clean Up Australia Day is a great way to take care of our country and the community we live in.

If you have chemicals at home that you are unsure how to dispose of, bring them to Merriwa’s Waste Disposal Facility on Saturday, January 29th for free donation at the Household Chemical CleanOut event.

The event runs from 9am to 3:30pm and community members can dispose of a variety of household chemicals including paint, garden chemicals, toxins, batteries, pool chemicals, motor oils, liquids and fuels, fluorescent lights, gas cylinders, fire extinguishers and smoke detectors.
