Clean Up Australia Day

Join UC staff, students and the community at our UC Clean Up Australia Day event on March 2nd 2021

Meet at the Concourse at 11am for a safety briefing, collect your PPE and garbage bags before making your way around campus collecting any rubbish you find long the way then head to the Ngunnawal Garden for a thank you BBQ for participants.

There has never been a better time to tackle the surge in single use disposable items, such as takeaway coffee cups, food packaging, masks, and sanitised wipes; all of which are polluting our local parks, bushland, streets, waterways, and campus.

In fact, research reveals more than 1 in 3 (34%) Australian households self-identified as producing more packaging waste during lockdown periods in 2020 compared to previous years, and more than 1 in 2 (55%) reported they are now more concerned about product packaging waste than they were in 2019.
