Eight  volunteers came out on a lovely spring morning (although it was slightly smelly due to an overflowing sewerage pipe nearby!)  to help clean the streets around Bogong Avenue and Myrtle Street in Glen Waverley. We also welcomed a new member - thank you for your interest and hopefully we will see you at future events. Thank you everyone for your efforts; every piece of litter removed from the street is one less that can enter the stormwater system and make it's way to the creeks and bays. As usual, there were plenty of cigarettre butts (1750) that were picked up, many from the garden beds in the street and around the multi storey car park on Bogong Avenue.
