Astron Environmental Services organised a clean-up event on June 5th in celebration of World Environment Day, the United Nations’ principal driver for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the environment.
Astron employees took to Bayswater Riverside Gardens on Friday afternoon to collect rubbish and clean up the local park which is widely used by the local community.
The Astron team successfully collected 12 large bags of rubbish from the area.
“Our natural environment in Perth is very diverse and requires the help of the community to ensure it’s successfully preserved for future generations,” explains Astron Managing Director, Will Wishart.
“World Environment Day is a great reminder to think about how we can work together to make a difference to the natural environment and generate a positive impact."
“Litter is the downside of our convenience-oriented disposable culture and it’s generally left to local government and community led organisations to do the cleaning up. I believe we need to get more engagement from local businesses and state government to help with tidying up our environment and we need to do far more towards the prevention of litter in WA."
“Our team’s dedication to the natural environment is fantastic and we’ll certainly be organising another event next year.”
