The inaugural clean for Love Our Street 3150 was on a hot January morning, supported by 17 wonderful volunteers. We cleaned the streets around Bogong Avenue and Myrtle Street (around the area behind Kingsway and next to the Centrelink office). We had some interest and support from passers-by which was encouraging. A big thank you to Jill for coming out and supporting us on the day and for all her patient help in getting us this far!

We collected 4.65kg of general litter plus 56 bottles and cans that could have been returned via a container deposit scheme and 1000 cigarette butts, many of which were in the garden beds.
