Last year, more than 750 community volunteers and hundreds of school students came together on Clean Up Australia Day to help keep Maroochy looking great.

Collectively, around 200 wheelie bins of rubbish was collected across the Shire by last year's participants.

So far this year, 33 community and business groups and 17 schools have registered Clean Up sites across Maroochy.

There is still time to register new sites, and interested individuals and community groups are encouraged to get together with neighbours, friends and family in a one day blitz to help 'put rubbish away for good' on Sunday 6 March.

Registrations can be made online at <> or by phoning the toll free information line on 1800 CUA DAY/1800 282 329.

Public sites across Maroochy Shire are listed on Council's website at <> and the Clean Up page will be updated daily until Friday 4 March.  Details can also be obtained by calling Council's Customer Call Centre on 1800 366 695.
