Community rallies for spring clean-up

ONE Community Together (OCT) is calling on residents to don their gloves and help give their public spaces a tidy up when it hosts its second annual Clarence Plains Community Spring Clean-Up.

Nearly 100 community members worked together during last year’s event to remove approximately 12-cubic-metres of rubbish from the streets and parks of Rokeby and Clarendon Vale.

This year’s clean-up will be held on Saturday 15 October, commencing at 10am and running until 3pm at two locations – the Rokeby Neighbourhood Centre, located at 85 Tollard Drive and the Clarendon Vale Neighbourhood Centre at 65 Mockridge Road.

There will be a free barbecue for volunteers at both clean-up sites.

OCT is also encouraging community members to take advantage of the Clarence City Council’s annual hard waste collection.

Hard waste will be collected from Clarendon Vale on Tuesday 1 November and Rokeby on Tuesday 15 November from 6am on both days.

To register for the Spring Clean-Up, visit the Clean Up Australia Day website at www.cleanupaustraliaday.org.au, click the tab at the bottom of the page and search for either Rokeby or Clarendon Vale.

For more information about the event, phone Matt on 1800 269 672.
