Thousands of volunteers around Blacktown are gearing up for Clean Up Australia Day this Sunday, March 5.

The annual day of action is the nation’s largest community-based environmental event, with people donating more than 27 million hours of their time over the past 25 years.

Last year more than 800 volunteers in Blacktown collected 9 tons of waste from 41 registered sites. An additional 9,500 students from 40 schools also took part.

Baitul Huda Mosque, Marsden Park, can boast the largest participation for groups in the area – and indeed the country.

Ahmadiyya Muslims, who preach love for all and loyalty to their country, again lead the national Clean Up Australia Day charts for money raised and participants registered this year.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Australia president Imam Kauser said every Muslim should take part in the day.

“Islam teaches us to be mindful of cleanliness on individual and on societal levels,” Imam Kauser said.

“The Holy Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has said that cleanliness is part of faith. This is why it is every Muslim’s responsibility to keep their surroundings neat and clean.”

Ahmadiyya spokesman Aqeel Ibraheem said their involvement was part of the group’s commitment to letting actions speak louder than words.

There are 96 clean up sites registered in and around Blacktown this year – find a site and join now at cleanupaustraliaday.org.au.
