Perfect time for Tieri to Clean Up

MOTHER Nature set the scene for Tieri to tidy up, with cool and overcast weather that was perfect for volunteers attending Clean Up Australia Day.

Oaky Creek Coal’s environmental co-ordinators organised the day’s activities for the mine and the community.

OCC No. 1 environmental co-ordinator Melanie Rosak said she was pleased with the results and the turnout.

“We started the clean-up campaign by tidying up around the mine site,” she said. “To complement that we organised a community Clean Up Australia Day event, and we also went out to Tieri State School to explain to the kids what would happen on the day.”

Tieri mum Paula Agustin said her son Jack, 5, was definitely listening.

“My son was awake and dressed at 6am, he was ready to clean up Tieri even before we were awake,” Mrs Agustin said.

For Julie Slatter and her daughter Brooke, Clean Up Australia Day has become a ritual in the family.

“We’ve lived in town for three years and we used to do it (clean-up) at the youth centre, we’ve just kept coming down.”

The volunteers were rewarded with a hot barbecue breakfast supplied by ESS.
