Locals called to take action for a litter-free Town

18 January 2017

Community groups, individuals and businesses have the tools available to take action for a litter-free neighbourhood. 

Town of Victoria Park Mayor Trevor Vaughan called on residents to get involved in creating a litter-free community.

The Adopt-a-Spot program, facilitated by Keep Australia Beautiful WA, encourages community-focussed organisations and individuals to keep their local environment clean, by adopting a site in the local area to keep litter-free. In 2016 the program had more than 650 registered groups state wide from individuals to family, business, community and school groups.

Litter is an ongoing problem faced by every community in Western Australia and getting local residents involved in adopting sites has many benefits for the Town.

“The Adopt-a-Spot program encourages environmental responsibility and gives locals the opportunity to support the Town in its litter clean-up efforts,” Mayor Vaughan said. 

“Research suggests that littered areas are more likely to attract other antisocial behaviours such as graffiti and vandalism, so tackling the littering issue is important for community safety as well as environmental health.” 

Participants in the Adopt-a-Spot program are provided with all the tools to keep their site clean, including; gloves, litter bags, tongs and safety information. Adoptees are recognised on the Keep Australia Beautiful website and get an official Adoption Certificate. Volunteer insurance is also available.

Mayor Vaughan said the Town of Victoria Park was pleased to support the program and encouraged local businesses, community groups and individuals to register.

“Adopting a spot is an excellent way to get involved in the community and support the Town’s efforts to create a clean environment for locals and visitors to enjoy.”
