Cleanaway Somersby Depot Open Day 2018

Over 400 residents attended Cleanaway Somersby Depot’s Open Day to celebrate National Recycling Week 2018. For families, kids and garbo fans, it was the perfect opportunity to get up close with our Cleanaway trucks while learning about recycling and sustainability.
