Clean up La Trobe Day - 6 March

Join us for ‘Clean Up La Trobe Day,’ as part of Clean Up Australia Day on Tuesday 6 March.

LClean Up Day Imagea Trobe is celebrating the Clean Up Australia Day with its very own ‘Clean Up La Trobe Day.’

A huge success in recent years the Clean Up day will focus on the University’s border on Crissane Road (see map) in collaboration with Darebin Creek Management Committee and Banyule Council and will help La Trobe in its ambition to reduce its waste levels by 7.5% in 2012 from 2010 levels.

La Trobe Pro Vice-Chancellor (Sustainability) Professor Carol Adams said that Clean Up Day was a good way of incorporating sustainability practices into its involvement with the wider community.  

‘That we share such environmental concerns with the community around us is a really positive outcome of Clean Up La Trobe Day.  Not only can we uphold La Trobe’s reputation for beautiful campuses but we can also contribute to the sustainability aspirations of our community.’

Staff and students who attend Clean Up La Trobe day will also be placed in the running to win a Kindle Touch EReader, along with prizes from the Co-op bookshop and the Wildlife Sanctuary.  For more details and to register please visit:
