Great northern clean up

Mount Isa’s Great Northern Clean Up is coming up this year on Sunday, August 20.

Volunteers should assemble 7am at the Pioneer Shopping Centre or register your own clean up site at

There will be a free sausage sizzle, participation prizes and an “upcycling” competition.

The Great Northern Clean Up is held in winter as the weather can be too hot for the March Clean Up Australia Day event in northern Australia.
