Kyocera team gets stuck in on Business Clean Up Day 2014

Kyocera Clean up 1

Ian Kiernan pays us an onsite visit

Twenty-five years since the launch of Clean Up Australia – and it’s still going strong!

Kyocera has been involved in Business Clean Up Day for 12 years and this year, Tuesday 25th February, saw us out and about at local Blackman Park in Lane Cove cleaning up along the riverfront and in amongst the mangroves.

The founder of Clean Up Australia Day, Ian Kiernan, joined us onsite to kick off the day.

We pulled out bags and bags of rubbish and recyclables from the reserve. Amongst the usual recyclables we also removed:

  • A TV remote control
  • old mattress foam (a massive chunk)
  • sections of carpet
  • an old tyre
  • even parts of a car
We got stuck into removing rusting car metal

That’s right – a car!! While we didn’t have the tools to remove the engine and chassis, we were able to remove several large pieces of rusted metal and helped reduce the impact on the mangrove ecosystem. .

It was very satisfying to make a difference in a local area – not to mention great exercise and fun team building!
After a hot shower, we capped off the day with a team lunch of pizza.

No that's not a super-strong-man - it's not sandstone it's mattress foam!
