A CLEAN-UP crew were up to their elbows in mud when they cleaned up Tingalpa Creek at Thorneside.
Locals and their representatives spent Sunday morning loading rubbish and debris from the shoreline.
"Love for our environment is something that transcends politics," Bev Walters, LNP candidate for Capalaba said.
The Clean Up Australia site was coordinated by Oz Fish Moreton Bay and supervised by Eddie Johnson.
Clean Up Australia Day started in 1990 and sees local communities cleaning up and conserving their environment.
"It was wonderful to see people from the wider community enjoying each other's company, sharing a few laughs, and cleaning up Tingalpa Creek at the same time," Ms Walters said.
Members of the Wynnum Redlands Canoe Club were also out in force to assist with the clean-up.
"Sunday's effort was a great result for the community," she said.
