Clean Up Australia Day 2017


It was all hands on deck recently as members of the port community got together to do their bit (and get their hands dirty) in order to ensure their local area was “ship shape”, a place to be proud of.

In March, NSW Ports once again hosted events at a number of our operational sites in support of Clean Up Australia Day. The day is all about taking action to clean up, fix up and conserve our Australian environment.

Business Clean up events help us to engage with our neighbours, customers and stakeholders to ensure the cleanliness of the local areas in which we operate.

Clean up activities took place on Prince of Wales Drive at Port Botany, Outer Harbour foreshore at Port Kembla and at the Enfield Intermodal Logistics Centre.

At all sites, NSW Ports staff members were joined by representatives from various port operators. The teams worked together to collect many bags of rubbish and remove assorted discarded objects from the area.

NSW Ports would specifically like to thank staff from DP World, Vopak, Origin, BlueScope Steel, Port Kembla Coal Terminal, Port Kembla Gateway, University of Wollongong and Port Kembla Harbour Environment Group who volunteered their time and effort to join in with us to clean up the port precinct in areas that are often used by port workers and members of the community.
