13 Love Our Street 3030 volunteers removed 94 kilos of litter (including recyclables) from the Werribe River area. The tally included 256 containers that could have been used in a cash for container scheme IF Victoria had such a scheme – still waiting on that.

Keven collected about 1000 cigarette butts, and Gary pulled out an old bike from the river. Nick and Steve tackled the enormous pile of casks, bottles and cans where people have clearly been drinking and leaving behind their containers.
