5 Telstra people joined our LoveOurStreet 3207 team for a street clean around South Melbourne on Friday.  Splitting into 3 groups they set off in different directions to pick up and count litter along the way.  2758 items of litter were collected.

Some Results

Distance Covered                                  5 km approx

Bags of Rubbish Collected                     8 BP Bags, approx 30 kg

No. of Bottles and cans collected        169 equates to 31 m per littered bottle or can

No. of coffee cups collected                85 equates to 59m per littered up

No. of cigarette Buts collected               1726 equates to 3 m per littered butt


Need less to say they were shocked at the amount of litter around, especially butts and bottles & cans.
