Channel 10 News story


Ian Kiernan - CEO Clean Up Australia,

Richard Holloway representing ACWA and

Ron Clarke - Mayor Gold Coast,

took part in a media event to highlight the dangers to our waterways from pollution caused by washing cars in driveways and in the streets.


This event was featured on the Channel 10 News and was followed up by radio and press interviews given by Ian Kiernan - total of 8 media hits reaching over 223,000 viewers and listeners! 


ACWA hopes that this is just the first of many future media events around the country to educate the public and to bring more car owners into using commerical car washes.
