17 LOS volunteers collected a significant amount of recyclable bottles and cans today from the area behind the Watton Street shops and in front of the Werribee River. A combined total of 274 bottles and cans was collected, plus plenty of discarded casks, cardboard boxes (i.e. pizza, beer, other), piles of straws literally falling from the balcony of one of the shops (yes, we’ll certainly be following up here), and plastic in various sizes. There were some usable items found including 1 beer stubby, 2 spaghetti tins, 1 scissors, 1 garden pot, 1 dress and 1 bra.


In total approx. 55 shopping bags of litter and recyclables were collected, weighing 85 kilos, across an area of approx. 30 metres deep and 500 metres in length.
