  • A sense of belonging to the community, as well as generating patriotism and national pride in Australia.
  • It is an event that is inclusive of all Australians.
  • Helps to educate and inform Australians about the impact of rubbish in our environment.
  • Great team building opportunity for businesses and their employees.
  • Fosters local partnerships between Council and local businesses.
  • A social day where businesses can spend time with their employees.
