A discarded Tim McGraw CD was among the 80 bags of rubbish collected in a clean up by a group of Peak Gold Mines and Pybar employees last week along the Kidman Way.

As part of the Clean Up Australia movement which encourages communities to clean up, fix up and conserve our environment, PGM holds an annual Clean Up event.

And while the annual Clean Up Australia Day is held on the first Sunday in March, PGM chooses to hold their annual Clean Up Day when the weather is cooler and there’s less chance of seeing snakes.

The group of 30 Peak and Pybar employees spent a few hours last Tuesday afternoon cleaning up a section of the Kidman Way roadside from the mine site turn-off to the Cobar Rugby Union Club entrance.

After the clean up the group was treated to a barbecue at the Great  Cobar Heritage Centre.

PGM acknowledged the support of Broughton Field Services who also joined in the volunteering effort to collect the rubbish bags from the side of the road.
