Clean Up Australia Day 2017 Rogers Reserve Highfields

The fourth annual Clean-Up Australia Day Event was again held at the Charles & Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve in Highfields, organized by the Friends of Rogers Reserve Volunteer Group.

A large number of volunteers and children turned out to do their part to 'Keep Australia Beautiful" and to show their love for the reserve.

It was another successful event with 2 1/2 bags of rubbish and one bag of recycling collected.  This is a very good result for such a large area frequented by the public. 

 We are grateful for the members of the public who pick up rubbish within and around the Charles & Motee Rogers Bushland Reserve on their daily walks, and also for the new installation of a wheelie bin at the reserve entrance by Toowoomba Regional Council, so that people can dispose of their rubbish correctly and conveniently.

Thank you to everyone who attended and for your community spirit.  See you again next year!
