Clean Up Australia’s Ian Kiernan passes


The founder of Clean Up Australia, Ian Kiernan, has passed away following his cancer diagnosis in July this year.

Survived by his wife Judy, and two daughters, Mr Kiernan was remembered by the organisation for his guidance and humour in pioneering the one of the nation’s preeminent environmental organisation.

"Ian believed that Clean Up belongs to the millions of volunteers who have taken to their streets, beaches, parks, bushland and waterways to remove the rubbish that is bothering them," the organisation said in a statement.

"He believed that Clean Up belongs to the millions of volunteers who have taken to their streets, beaches, parks, bushland and waterways to remove the rubbish that is bothering them.”
