A few more details:

We will be collecting rubbish from the various places around the forest and taking it to the car park to place in a skip that forestry is kindly providing for us. So some utes/trailers would be useful if you have any.

- What to bring:
- mainly just yourself
- gloves
- sturdy protective boots
- hat/sunscreen etc
- utes/trailers if possible
- sturdy bags if you have some for the small stuff (I'll bring some old chook food bags)
- lots of energy
- a bike if you are keen for a ride after

Have a think about where you have seen rubbish around the forest that we need to collect.

Forestry also have some volunteers this weekend (4wd's I think) that will be dragging some car bodies to one spot for collection at some time. I have given them the location of 4, if anyone knows of some others out the back that I may have missed let us know before this weekend. The 4 dumped cars I already have are:
- 2 near(in) car park
- 1 ~100m up Bulgas Rd from car park
- 1 along Kinross Lane, east of bottom of 'Dually Andrew's', west of bottom of 'John Doe'

Thanks all for the great effort today.

I added some photos to the gallery to show the ridiculous amount of rubbish that we gathered from around the forest.
