IT'S time to roll the sleeves up and put the gloves on for Clean Up Australia Day, held throughout the city tomorrow.

Environment and Conservation Committee chairwoman Heather Morrow said a huge number of Ipswich residents and community organisations always pitched in for the day and groups were always adding to the list of volunteers.

A group of cadets and staff from TS Ipswich Australian Navy Cadets joined the efforts last year with a clean up at the Bundamba skate park and will be back volunteering this weekend.

TS Ipswich executive officer Paul Andrews said pushbikes, chairs and tyres were among a large amount of rubbish the group pulled out at Bundamba Creek.

Since the national event started 25 years ago, Australians have removed 288,650 tonnes of rubbish.

Groups will work at Goupong Park, Collingwood Park from 10am-12pm and Denmark Hill Conservation Estate from 11am-12pm. For more information about Clean Up Australia Day in Ipswich visit ipswich.qld.gov.au or cleanupaustraliaday.org.au.
