Clean up Australia Day is a bit of an institution, from national parks to city streets, it's a great way to meet new people and do something cool for the planet, and your community.
Turns out the internet has discovered the concept, and created a hashtag to get everyone on board, and it's gone as viral as the Icebucket Challenge.
#Trashtag has swept the world, after starting on Reddit, with people from all over doing their bit to clean up.
Check out some of the great work being down below.
