This year our group nominated to control 2 location around the lake, one at Koonawarra Bay and the other at the Skiway Park, at the last moment we were asked to control another location at the PCYC so we were stretched to the limit luckily many members of the public turned up at all location to help in the clean up of lake Illawarra foreshores many bags of rubbish was collected. Our group enjoyed a great BBQ after the Clean up

Rise & Shine presentation night was held on Thursday 11 December 2008 and was well attended by our group. We were presented with an “Environmental Award 20028”

Clean Up Australia Day, Sunday, 2nd March 2008 .  12 SLIAG members were joined by a record number of 21 Illawarra residents from 9am onward. We donned gloves, collected our bags and cleaned up the lake foreshore from Windang bridge to the Police Citizens Youth Club between Reddall Parade and the lake. 

This year we had 2 bags each, one for general rubbish and another for recyclables.  A bit inconvenient to drag around, but what a great idea. Our group collected lots and lots of rubbish ranging from cigarette buts, lolly wrappers, bottles etc as well as an 81cm plasma TV and wire bed base.

At 11am we all retired to Reddall Reserve. Shellharbour City Council and Stockland had $1000 up for grabs in the form of a treasure hunt. Buried in the sand were small minute garbage bins containing prizes. If your name was called out you got a chance to dig a plot approx 1m square.  If a bin was found, the prize inside is yours. Only 3 names were called out at a time so there was no stampede.  It was great to see so many little kids digging and their happy grins when a bin was found.

At the end of the dig our group retired to a shed to have – hot chips from “Peppies” , some buttered bread and soft drinks consumed then. After we were all full, Cobie brought out her famous cream horns and other pastries.  We all had a great day out and a very efficient clean up of some of the lake foreshore.

This is a community clean up campaign run by Wollongong City Council. 

One of the areas to be clean up this year was the Lake Illawarra Catchment. This was the third (3) year that Save Lake Illawarra Action Group has participated .

Save Lake Illawarra Action Group was awarded the Rise & Shine environmental award 2005 by Wollongong Council.

Save Lake Illawarra Action Group Inc. participated in Rise and Shine Wollongong 2005 collecting rubbish at Lakeside Park and Wooroo Point Kanahooka and Windang.

A truckload of rubbish was collected from Lake Illawarra foreshore and creeks at Pelican Reserve, by members of Save Lake Illawarra Action Group Inc. on Clean Up Australia day 2005.

Save Lake Illawarra Action Group Inc. also participated in Rise and Shine Wollongong 2004 collecting rubbish at Lakeside Park and Wooroo Point Kanahooka and Clean Up Australia Days dating back to 2002.

We are planning to be part of these actions in the future and will post details on this site in the News & Notes section.

Get involved in clean-up activities, with us or other groups. Be mindful of all the rubbish ending up in our waterways and become part of making Lake Illawarra, foreshores and creeks a cleaner and healthier environment.
