How you can get involved in Clean Up Australia Day this weekend

Australians will be putting on the gloves and pulling out the garbage bags as they lend a hand for Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday.

The organisation’s annual Rubbish Report confirms plastic remains the biggest issue for volunteers, accounting for nearly a third of all rubbish.

Clean Up Australia Chairwoman Pip Kiernan – the daughter of founder Ian Kiernan – tells Alan Jones everyone is encouraged to get involved.

“There’s a neat little map there, you can see all the locations around the country.

“We’ll have about 7000 sites and more than 700,000 Australians taking part.”
