PEOPLE across the region are getting ready to put on gumboots and rubber gloves and take up their rubbish collection bags to help clean up the great outdoors tomorrow.

The region's beaches and the Burnett River will be the main focus of this year's clean-up campaign.

The annual event hopes to pull big crowds after floods and tornadoes flung debris around the region in recent weeks.

Bundaberg Mayor Mal Forman said this year's Clean Up Australia Day would be special because of the disasters that had struck the area.

"While we have had the Mud Army and many individual members cleaning up around the region, there are many places that are still in need of attention," he said.

"The long road to recovery has begun and Clean Up Australia Day is just one way people can help this process."

Several schools across the region held clean-up days yesterday.
