Clean Up the Peel

Friends of Rivers, Peel in partnership with Peel-Harvey Catchment Council coordinates this month-long event. Now in its fifth year, the annual Clean Up Peel Waterways event has expanded to include parks, reserves and neighbourhoods and has been renamed Clean Up the Peel.

Register your group for the annual CLEAN UP THE PEEL event this March
We encourage all groups participating to hold their individual clean-up events during the month of March to tie in with Clean Up Australia Day. Groups taking part will be publicly acknowledged through various social media streams with a minimum full-page advertisement in a local paper which will spread the word about your clean-up and attract much-needed volunteers.

Last year’s efforts were cut short because of Covid-19, but the previous year 17 teams and 300 volunteers worked together and removed 7 tonnes of rubbish from in and around the Peel waterways of the Ramsar 482 site. This year we want the event to be even bigger and better and involve more of our community so we can really make a difference to our local environment.

Steps you need to take to register:
1. March will be here before you know it so please register your site with Clean Up Australia so that your equipment arrives in time. Clean Up Australia also provides public liability insurance, so this step is very important and necessary for a successful clean-up event.

2. Fill in this registration form(required) with your event details. This is used to promote your event locally by social media and print media. Please email your completed form by 10/02/2021 to
