Clean Up Australia Day - Wrap UpMon, 14 Mar 2011
On 12th March 2011, 25 residents of Dowerin took advantage of perfect weather to pick up litter along the four main approaches to the township of Dowerin.
At the end of the two hours the Shire truck was loaded to its maximum capacity with rubbish and almost as much was sent to the Dowerin Recycling Centre for sorting. The money raised from the recycling will go towards Dowerin District High School projects.
It is sad to reflect that each year we have covered most of the same areas on Clean Up Australia Day and each year we pick up a similar volume of litter.
We are very grateful to all who took part in Clean Up Australia Day and especially for the extra effort towards planning and behind the scenes by Steve Geerdink and Sonia Dwaal.
