We're inviting the community to come along to the Holroyd Gardens, Merrylands this Sunday and be part of a clean-up and free BBQ event.

Be the change you want to see and do your part in reducing litter. The clean-up will take place from 8.30am to 11.00am followed by a free BBQ to 11.45am.

According to the Clean Up Australia Day organisation, Australians produce 500kg of household waste per person, each year. That's more than 10kg for every single person, every single week.

Of the estimated 74 million tonnes of waste Australians generated in 2018-19, 43 million tonnes was recycled, leaving 27 million tonnes disposed of in landfill.

It's estimated about 130,000 tonnes of Australian plastic ends up in our waterways, parks and oceans each year.

What can you do?
