Clean Up Australia Day takes place on the first Sunday in March every year, and it's here again! Last year more than 500,000 Australians donned their gloves and set about collecting over 15,000 tons of rubbish from Australian creeks, streets, rivers, beaches and bushland.
And what did the rubbish review find in that 15,000+ tons of rubbish?... plastics! For the 16th year mass plastics including PET drink bottles, lids and wrappers topped the rubbish reviews' source list, comprising 40% of all rubbish items collected. Your can read the full rubbish report here.
