Two local beach clean-ups, as part of Clean Up Australia Day, will be held in Bruns and Byron on March 3.

The Bruns event is being organised by Byron Shire Council and Positive Change for Marine Life.

They invite the public to meet at Torakina Park on South Beach Road from 8am, with the focus on  rubbish around the Torakina and Brunswick Heads beach area.

Everything provided

‘We will provide everything you need, and you will even get a free coffee as a little thank you, just bring your own cup’, Sarah Child, Council’s Resource Recovery Strategy and Engagement Officer said.

Over in Byron, the Byron Yoga Centre will lead a team to clean up the town’s beaches. Organisers say ‘We’d love for you to join us – we’re meeting at our Town Yoga Studio: 6 Byron St, Byron Bay from 9am’.

‘Bring your friends, comfy shoes and some gloves and we will supply the bags. Let’s clean up Byron Bay together!’ Both events finish at 11am.


Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. Would help to keep rubbish off the beach if nightclub wrist bands were not used anymore. Why not use stamps?
    Promotion of Take 3 for the Sea would also be a good initiative.
