Wagga residents seem to be displaying more pride in their city with attendance numbers for Clean Up Australia Day increasing on last year.
“It’s funny that we don’t get more outraged about it (littering),” Wagga City Council’s environmental education officer Alice Kent said.
“People are starting to get really cranky that others are treating our city this way.”
Eleven sites were registered in Wagga yesterday and 22 schools were registered on Friday to clear away items as part of the annual event.
Volunteers filled a skip bin at Flowerdale lagoon while 25 participants attended the community site at Kooringal Road.
Air force cadets, Turvey Park Girl Guides, Rotarians and the Gelston Park Community Gardens group were also designated sites.
