South Hedland Street Blitz

Do your bit for the environment and help Care For Hedland to 'blitz' the streets of South Hedland!

When: To be announced for 2017

What: We are currently looking for people to nominate an area for clean up and to also nominate their team!

Teams can be made up of business, community or school group or even just a bunch of mates. Teams are a minimum of five people who can use any equipment at their disposal to 'blitz' - remove rubbish, mow verges, tidy edges etc. of their elected street. The winning team will not only receive bragging rights but also a trophy and medals for participants. This year teams will also be on the look out for hidden treasure in their nominated areas for additional prizes.

What Else: There will be a celebratory BBQ at the Splash and Play Water Park on Cottier Drive. Also, as this is the ‘South Hedland’ Street Blitz, only streets in South Hedland are able to participate on the day. However residents in Port Hedland, Pretty Pool and Wedgefield are encouraged to create a team and clean their local area. Additional prizes will be awarded in these areas based on before and after photos.
