Background

Clean Up Australia Day is a national event that occurs on the first Sunday of every March. It commenced in 1990 and essentially involves people coming out to designated sites and helping clean up the discarded litter and rubbish. Clean Up sites are predetermined by local Clean Up Australia Day committees.

State participation in national Clean Up Australia Day was transferred to the Department of Conservation and Environment in January 1991 from the Department of Premier and Cabinet (VA 1039).

At the state level administrative support is currently provided from within Melbourne Parks and Waterways. Prior to 1994 administrative support had been provided by the Promotions Officer within the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (VA 3097).
