The Port Neill Progress Association was one of 7383 registered sites that took part in the 2018 Clean Up Australia Day on Sunday, March 4.

A small band of volunteers from the Progress Association met at the Port Neill Green Shed on the Sunday morning and spent two hours collecting a ute-load of roadside rubbish and recyclables from the Port Neill entrance road as well as the Road Watch section of the Lincoln Highway.

This year marked 27 years of Clean Up Australia Day, which was first held in 1990, after the event first started as Clean Up Sydney Harbour Day in 1989.

It then evolved into Clean Up The World, which was launched in 1993.
