Mackay and Whitsunday Life

Three More Days Left To Step Up To Clean Up

The "Clean up Mackay Region" initiative got off to a strong start last weekend, with three days of successful efforts. The community came together with enthusiasm to ensure our region remains pristine. Now, three more opportunities are on the horizon, taking place this upcoming weekend and throughout the following week.

Mayor Greg Williamson praised the community's commitment, highlighting how these events help us take pride in our area and work together for its beauty. The initiative reflects our collective determination to maintain the region's appeal.

This year's initiative comes with an added appreciation from the council. For each person who participates, the council plans to plant five native trees—street trees or for revegetation.

As we collectively focus on preserving the natural beauty of our region, "Clean up Mackay Region" highlights the power of working together for a cleaner and greener community.

Sunday, August 20
