Clean Up Kalgoorlie-Boulder Day

Annual Kalgoorlie-Boulder Clean-up Day 2020

Over 120 people attended the 2020 Clean Up Kalgoorlie-Boulder Day to work together to clean up one of the original regeneration zones established by KBULG’s predecessor the Goldfields Dust Abatement Committee, which is an area that is frequently targeted by illegal dumpers and litterers. This year’s Clean Up Australia Day event was again immensely successful at fostering community spirit and increasing civic pride within Kalgoorlie-Boulder. Each year we seem to see the event grow as more and more of the community turn out to help us clean up local areas of Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

KBULG was also honoured by the attendance of Michael Aspinall and the Tidy Towns and Keep Australia Beautiful WA team who opened up the 2020 Tidy Towns Awards at the event.

As always a huge thank you to all our sponsors who make it possible to run these events and for helping us reward our hardworking volunteers with a sausage sizzle and raffle prizes. Big thanks to the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder for helping us with the event, the location and with the collection of the rubbish from the days activities. The total amount of rubbish yet to be confirmed but it is believed to be over 2 tonnes of litter and dumped items.

We look forward to seeing everyone at our next Clean-Up day 2021.

Annual Kalgoorlie-Boulder Clean-up Day 2019

2019’s Clean-Up Kalgoorlie Boulder Day was once again a great success, with 122 people coming together to clean up the area of bushland between Gatacre Drive and Atbara Street, an area of cultural significance to one of our Local Indigenous Elders.

Held this year on Sunday the 10th of March, the community broke out the bags, gloves and a whole lot of elbow grease to fill two skip bins ,supplied by Clean-Away, with litter that was not only affecting the visual aesthetics of the beautiful natural bushland but also posed a risk to natural flora and fauna.

The hard-working volunteers were treated to a BBQ after the clean-up and a raffle with prizes donated by both KBULG and our Sponsors. Clean-up day is both a fun day out and a great way for people to get involved in their community.

We at KBULG thank all our sponsors and the people of Kalgoorlie-Boulder for all of their support and hard work. We look forward to seeing everyone at our next Clean-up day.

Annual Kalgoorlie-Boulder Clean Up Day 2018

The 2018 Kalgoorlie-Boulder Clean Up Day was held on Sunday, 11 March, and focused on cleaning up the area around the Communication Tower on the top of Graeme St. The participants filled up a skip bin, supplied by Cleanaway, with litter items of varied shapes and sizes affecting the bushland and native animals at the site.

The many hard-working volunteers were rewarded with a BBQ and various raffle prizes, making this event again a fun day out achieving a great outcome for both visual amenity and conservation. Thank you to all our sponsors and the people of Kalgoorlie-Boulder for all your hard work and a morning full of smiles!

This year KBULG also organised a second Clean-Up Day, focusing on removing rubbish items dumped along the highway, in collaboration with Main Roads WA and the Keep Australia Beautiful Council. On Sunday, 10 June 2018, volunteers cleaned up a stretch of the Goldfields Highway extending to the Communications Tower. It was great to see so many dedicated individuals from the community also participating in our second major clean-up event of the year.

Annual Kalgoorlie-Boulder Clean Up Day 2017

In 2017 the Clean Up Australia Day was organised on Sunday, 12 March 2017. one week after the nation-wide Clean Up Australia Day which coincided with a long weekend. The site of this year’s Clean Up event was Rotary Peace Park – locally also known as Twin Dams. KBULG was excited with the great turn out of the event at the children – friendly location, and was especially pleased to welcome many families who volunteered to collect a large variety of rubbish items. The participants filled up a skip bin, supplied by Cleanaway, with rubbish items collected from within the park and surrounding areas.

The commendable conservation efforts of the many volunteers were rewarded with a BBQ and various raffle prizes. This year’s Clean Up Australia Day event was again immensely successful at fostering community spirit and increasing civic pride within Kalgoorlie-Boulder.

Annual Kalgoorlie-Boulder Clean Up Day 2016

Since its initial establishment as the Goldfields Dust Abatement Committee, one of KBULG’s key objectives has been to convey the message ’Reduce, Re-use, Recycle’ to the wider community, leading to an increased awareness of the waste cycle, and empowering the community to adequately assess the environmental impacts of waste. In addition to ongoing community education projects to educate the community about methods of waste prevention and waste recovery, KBULG hosts an annual Kalgoorlie-Boulder Clean Up Australia Day – a nationwide initiative promoted through state-specific Keep Australia Beautiful Councils. Every year the event is held at a different location, selected based on litter quantity and visual amenity priority.

This year the Clean Up Australia Day was organised on Sunday, 12 June 2016. Despite an early morning event start and it being a very cold winter morning, numerous dedicated community members from diverse age groups joined forces and assisted with cleaning up the litter items of varied shapes and sizes affecting the bushland and native animals around the Communication Tower on the top of Graeme St. KBULG was pleased to hand out additional rubbish bags to community members who expressed their interest of collecting rubbish items at other locations within the city and surroundings.

Coles and Woolworths donated gift vouchers that were handed out as raffle prizes. These kind donations encouraged and supported the admirable conservation efforts of the many engaged volunteers. Cleanaway again generously supplied a large skip bin, providing invaluable logistical support to the event. The Clean Up Australia Day events are a great way to foster community spirit and increase civic pride.

Despite light rain coinciding with the early morning event start, almost 70 members of the community from diverse age groups joined forces and assisted with cleaning up the litter items of varied shapes and sizes affecting the bushland and native animals in Hannans North behind Hannans Boulevard. KBULG was pleased to hand out additional rubbish bags to community members who expressed their interest of collecting rubbish items at other locations within the city and surroundings.

The Salvation Army funded and organised a free BBQ brunch for the community volunteers on the day and Coles donated gift vouchers that were handed out as raffle prizes. These kind donations encouraged and supported the admirable conservation efforts of the many engaged volunteers.
