Cassowary Coast Regional Council voted to go with the Northern Clean Up Australia Day
- which will be 11th and 12th September 2010.
The alternative date for
councils across the top end has been developed due to the problems with extreme heat and rainfall often expereinced by Northern
Australia during early March.
There has been a decline in some areas in local volunteer participation in recent years, and it is anticipated the change
in date will help address this trend.
There is information regarding the change for northern councils on the web-site
of Clean Up Australia - and local press releases as well. However, I provide this information for the community in case
any organisation is preparing to do a clean up this weekend.
Jennifer Downs - Councillor Cassowary Coast Regional Council.
