Clean Up Australia Day


Riddells Creek Landcare has been involved in the clean up of Barrm Birrm since 2006 and since this time the rubbish dumped there has steadily decreased.

Thanks to all those in Riddells Creek who continue to support us in this task.

The next Clean up Australia Day event at the Barrm Birrm site will be 6th March 2016.

Its great to see the amount of rubbish is still minimal, though we still find the occasional dump site :(

 
Thanks to our clean up crew!

2011 Clean Up Australia Day

13 volunteers registered and did a great job clearing two major dump sites and picking up general rubbish. It was great to notice a huge reduction in the amount of general rubbish!

2006 Clean Up Australia Day

24 volunteers registered and did a magnificent job clearing all the major rubbish dumped on the Shone-Scholtz bushland.
The collection included 30 bags of general rubbish, a car, a fridge, a cooker, a bike, a bed, 16 car tyres, ~10m cubed of garden waste, 8 assorted metal barrels & containers, a rottweiler carcass and much more.


 Then there was the car down a 6m ditch ...
 winched up by hand ...
 almost there ...
 

Drive away ... down the bush track ...

 

down the dirt road ...

 

to its final resting place ...


 
30 bags of rubbish ...

 
A heap of garden waste (the most damaging rubbish that can be dumped in bushland) ...

 
Lots of hard rubbish ...

 
       A lovely brown cooker ...

 
... and a Westinghouse 'Supreme' Fridge.



    Well done everyone ...
