Mackay Coastal Clean Up

The Mackay Coastal Clean Up is an initiative of Eco Barge Clean Seas Inc. and BHP Billiton Mitsubishi Alliance (BMA). It is about bringing people together to improve the condition of the ocean and beaches of the Mackay region.

Each Clean Up, held over a weekend, will be a family friendly event designed to encourage businesses, families and individuals to demonstrate their community pride and environmental commitment by donating their time to remove marine debris from selected locations along the shoreline in the Mackay and Sarina regions.

The sixth Clean Up was held on 23 and 24 May 2015 and focused on ten beaches between Shoal Point and Cape Palmerston:
