Fifty community volunteers from Peel-Harvey Catchment Council (PHCC), Shire of Murray, Murray Districts Aboriginal Association, local volunteers and Fairbridge Village worked together across three sites:

Cantwell Park, Battle of Pinjarra/Massacre Site and Morni Kep Park.

The project was initiated by Friends of Rivers Peel and supported by PHCC through funding from the Federal Government.

PHCC chairman Andy Gulliver said that the annual Pinjarra clean-up day was the best yet.

“Our thanks go out to the 50 community volunteers who came together to pick up, pull out, and pack up the rubbish collected,” he said.

“Clean-up days like this raise awareness of these issues and hopefully discourage people from disposing of rubbish in our fragile environment.”

There were six other community clean-ups which took place in Coolup, North Dandalup, Dwellingup, South Yunderup, Barragup and Nambeelup.
