LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean - Dec 7 2019

It's a busy time of year, but nine volunteers were able to come along, at various times, to clean up in the streets around Elwood Primary. Worst location was adjacent to a development site with lots of drink containers and butts. Local streets appeared cleaner.

A fantastic effort by all our members this year. Thank you everyone.

Three reports came in using the Litter Stopper app: 7 volunteer hours, 11.3 kg of litter (11 bags), 29 drink containers, 360 cigarette butts. All this litter was cleaned up from beside the Elwood Canal and its feeder - Elster Creek. Port Phillip Council responded to a Snap Send Solve by visiting a development site that had significant litter directly beside the canal. Council officers required a number of strategies to be put in place and undertook to monitor compliance. It's worth reporting issues and keeping an eye on our neighbourhoods.

19kgs of litter and 600 cigarette butts in one hour with only 13 litter enthusiasts on a Sunday afternoon, we call that a win! A few of the regulars and a few first timers got the job done and then some.

 

It's very clear summer has started again with the bins overflowing, people forgetting that we have only one planet and family fun bbqs turning into litter fests without intent.

 

The job is not yet done,but it is for coordinators Yumi and Gilbert, so if you feel that you can help coordinate (one of the) new litter pick Sundays for 2020, get in touch any time.

 

Thanks to all who attended, we might have been small in numbers, but we were big in results!
