Organisers for Clean up Mullum are inviting the public to help improve the town on  Sunday, March 5 from 8am till 1pm.

The event is associated with the annual Clean Up Australia event.

Co-organiser, Bronwyn Morris, says they will meet at Mullum Co-op to ‘clean up anywhere around town’.

‘Pick up your bags and sign up at Mullum Co-op, then choose an area to clean up and get out there!’, she says.

‘Enjoy a bite to eat and a drink (BYO cup, please) afterwards, thanks to Mullum Co-op, Woolworths Mullum, and Byron Shire Council for your support. Please bring covered shoes, sturdy gloves (some back-up pairs will be available at rego desk), a wide brimmed hat, sun smart clothing, a water bottle and a drink cup for drinks after the clean-up. Also your own rubbish bag, if you have one’.
