GOLDEN Bay residents will be donning gloves and filling garbage bags for the Golden Bay Tidy Up Day.

Locals are encouraged to clean up their own streets or join the teams of volunteers tidying up public open spaces, roadsides and verges around the bay area.

Supported by Keep Australia Beautiful, Golden Bay Estate and Bunnings Port Kennedy, this community initiative was generated via the Golden Bay Community Chat Facebook page.

Tidy Up organiser Ben Day said the event was not only about cleaning up Golden Bay, but getting people to know each other and the people who live around them.

“We’ve already had more than 150 residents express an interest in the event, which is great,” he said.

“This community event is open to residents of all ages but children under the age of 16 will need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.

“Tidy Up Day volunteers will also need to bring their own sunscreen, water and hats and wear long trousers and closed-in shoes.

“Gloves, rubbish bags and litter picking-up devices will all be supplied on the day.”

There will be a free sausage sizzle back at Sunset Hill Park at the end of the clean-up.
