Today the Love Our Street 3030 team included 13 adults, 6 children and 1 baby and we cleaned around the Werribee River, behind the Watton Street shops and several of the city car parks.


Together we removed a whopping 293 kilos of litter from our city. A lot of this was building supplies, with 60kilos of tiles, 40 kilos of roofing panels, several pallets & some scrap metal. It would seem the enforcement of the rules that apply to builders/renovators is pretty slack. According to John Forrester, the Werribee Riverkeeper, who joined us today, a lot of these building supplies have been on site for sometime.


The kids had a great time and enjoyed the free share of sunglasses Lisa bought along kindly donated by her neighbour. Morning snacks went down a treat, thanks to some extras provided by Alicia.


With such a big haul from the Werribee City Centre, the Wyndham City rubbish collectors were a little shocked with the amount the Love Our Street 3030 team collected today.


Thanks you Love Our Street 3030 team:

Courtney, Trish, Felix, Ebony, (baby Felix), Shellianne, Donna, Meg, Graham, Keven, Lisa, Rosey, Brooke, Sophie, Violet, John, Arnold, Alicia, Cobus and Edith.
