Clean-up well on track

The group, which started in response to the track closure in March, has support from the City of Wanneroo to hold the May 24 clean-up in Two Rocks bushland.

Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said residents enjoyed the natural environment, but an increasing population brought challenges with rubbish disposal.

‘The build-up of rubbish in natural areas can have a devastating effect on our natural environment and our precious wildlife,’ Mrs Roberts said.

‘It is up to each one of us to look after our city and dispose of rubbish in a responsible and legal manner.’

The City will sponsor this weekend’s clean-up through its volunteer program, provide tip passes to Tamala Park to allow disposal of rubbish collected and have rangers on site for safety support.

There will also be a sausage sizzle.

Anyone interested in volunteering can call Claire on 0488 198 484 or contact the Two Rocks Fights Back page.

The Yanchep National Park Volunteers Association will hold a morning clean-up on June 4, focused on the verge along Yanchep Beach Road.

To take part in that, call the City’s conservation maintenance team on 9405 5000.

‘Keeping our city beautiful and rubbish free is a community wide responsibility,’ Mrs Roberts said.

‘Anyone who is aware of people illegally dumping litter or waste should call ranger services on 9405 5000 to report it.’
