As part of Keep Australia Beautiful's Adopt-a-Roadside program we have adopted a 5km section of the Midland Highway just north of Huntly. (see Photo Album section)
We conduct bi-monthly rubbish clean ups and encourage all members of the public to come along and help out (must be over 16).
This stretch of highway has been declared by VicRoads as having significant roadside vegetation, with many indigenous species still found here due to the lack of clearing / grazing / building occurring elsewhere.
Our clean up dates for 2012 are Sundays:
19th February, 15th April, 17th June, 19th August, 14th October and 9th December
We meet at the truckstop, approximately 6km north of the Huntly Post Office. We provide gloves, hi-vis vests, rubbish pick up tools, collection bags and insurance cover for all those who sign in on the day. This is an outdoor event. Please wear clothing appropriate to the weather (including hat and sunscreen if necessary), wear sturdy footwear and bring a water bottle.
No obligation to attend every clean up and stay for as little or as long as you like.
