Help clean up your act

TOMORROW’S Clean Up Australia Day activities in the Gympie region will focus on designated areas however, Gympie Regional Council has flagged a number of sites that need attention.

Streets and parks in Gympie’s central business district, Lake Alford and Brisbane Road, and Exhibition Road from Kidd Bridge to Eel Creek Road have not been registered as clean up sites, but Gympie Mayor Ron Dyne said that does no mean they cannot be included in the clean-up activities.

Groups involved are the Department of Environment and Resource Management, Lions Club of Gympie South, SES Tin Can Bay, Gympie Cooloola Rotary Club, Nolan Meats, Gympie Rotary Club, Apex Club of Gympie, Mary Valley Lions Club, Widgee Clean Up, and Miva QCWA.

They will focus their attention on clean-up sites at Rainbow Beach, Tin Can Bay, along Glastonbury Road, Mary Valley Road, Power Road, Sorensen Road, Groundwater Road, East Deep Creek Road/ Flood Road, Corella Road and Bonnick Road, Six Mile Rest Area, Widgee, Miva and Mary Valley.

Not all of these sites are public sites, but residents are encouraged to join some of these groups at various meeting places at 8am tomorrow or pick a place that needs attention and do their own thing.

Gympie: Meet at Attie Sullivan Park.

Tin Can Bay: Meet at the SES shed, 25 Bream Street.
