Gloves on, bags ready for Clean Up Australia Day this weekend

More than 30 sites are registered across the Eurobodalla shire for this Sunday's Clean Up Australia Day - and more helpers are needed, the council says.

Clean Up Australia Day coordinator Maree Cadman encouraged anyone thinking about pitching in to get involved.

"We've had only one volunteer register for the north-west side of the Batemans Bay CBD, and additional help around the Batemans Bay visitors information centre, McDonald's, both sides of the Batemans Bay Bridge and the main carparks would be appreciated," Ms Cadman said.

"Clean-up of the Batemans Bay CBD area helps prevent street litter from becoming marine debris - as it is easily windblown or carried into the estuary in heavy rain."

Other sites needing a few extra hands include Long Beach, Riverside Park at Moruya and Dalmeny.

"If anybody would like to do a last minute registration, they still can - I can also suggest places to clean up if they'd like to clean up a new site," she said.

"Clean-up bags will be available for pick up on Sunday at Corrigans Reserve, Batehaven, where 2EC radio will broadcast live between 9am and noon."
