3207LOS Cleans up around Cruise Ship Terminal
32 bags of rubbish including 7 bags of bottles.    216 drink bottles and cans.   75 coffee cups, or their lids or other drink cups  came from just 3 of the bags alone.   We unloaded and sorted it in front of a cruise ship crowd so many of them were staring at the pile of rubbish. Not a good look for Port Melbourne.

We had a great team turn out this weekend at Elwood Beach. The weather was beautiful and the team worked hard! Well done to all for collecting 15kg of landfill rubbish, 15 drinks containers and countless plastic fragments. This is all now off the beach and away from the marine environment! Great work!

Our next clean is on Saturday 16 March at 9am at the Point Ormond end of the beach. Between now and then we have Clean up Australia day on the first weekend of March. There are two local cleans you can participate in. LoveOurStreet Elwood will clean up on Saturday 2 March at 9.30am, meeting on the corner of Mitford Street and Poets Grove near Elwood Primary.

On Sunday 3 March LoveOurStreet Balaclava will be hosting a clean up around Balaclava Station at 9.30am, meeting by the station on Carlisle Street.

Today I believe we broke a record with us having a huge 17 volunteers here today. Thanks must go to Noelle who has been busily promoting  Mentone Beach Patrol via Facebook & Instagram. Today we flooded the beach and collected 20 bags of rubbish weighing 51.7 kgs including 147 bottles & cans which is 12 bags of rubbish weighing 25.6 kgs plus 147 bottles & cans. Well done to everyone and spread the word about us to your friends and family as the more we have the merrier.

Thanks everyone,

Paul.
