Businesses urged to help clean-up

Byron Bay business owners are being urged to join in a CBD clean-up tomorrow morning.

Peak business group, Byron United, has organised the clean-up as a prelude to Sunday’s Clean Up Australia Day and wants people out on the streets between 8 and 9 am sweeping, picking up rubbish and cleaning garden beds.

Executive officer, Diana Ricketts, said it was the third clean-up organised by the group, which wanted business operators to take pride in their town.

Byron Council is providing rubbish collection and those who have bags of rubbish to collect around the CBD should contact or 6680 8853 with details of the collection point.

Byron Bay High School will be taking up the challenge of cleaning up around the Youth Activity Centre and Sandhills Estate tomorrow afternoon.

Byron Bay Primary School pupils will also be out in the morning doing their bit for the clean-up.

Volunteers are needed for the clean-up. For more information call 66808853 or email
