LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean - Dec 7 2019

It's a busy time of year, but nine volunteers were able to come along, at various times, to clean up in the streets around Elwood Primary. Worst location was adjacent to a development site with lots of drink containers and butts. Local streets appeared cleaner.

A fantastic effort by all our members this year. Thank you everyone.

Three reports came in using the Litter Stopper app: 7 volunteer hours, 11.3 kg of litter (11 bags), 29 drink containers, 360 cigarette butts. All this litter was cleaned up from beside the Elwood Canal and its feeder - Elster Creek. Port Phillip Council responded to a Snap Send Solve by visiting a development site that had significant litter directly beside the canal. Council officers required a number of strategies to be put in place and undertook to monitor compliance. It's worth reporting issues and keeping an eye on our neighbourhoods.

LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean - a rainy day clean

Mad on this rainy morning? Well, seven of us were able to come along to Elwood shops (Glenhuntly Road) and nearby.
At least over 5 kg of litter didn't end up in the ocean: 600+ cigarette butts, 23 drink containers that should be returned if Victoria had a Container Deposit Scheme, lots of confectionery wrappers, lollipop sticks and Slurpee straws/straw packaging.
The heaviest rain help off till coffee time. 🐧🐧💚💚 Thanks everyone.

LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean - Our Fourth Birthday

You might think we just got together yesterday to eat birthday cake.

Well we also collected 13 kg of litter from Elwood Village and nearby streets: 1795 cigarette butts (plastic) and lots of serviettes, confectionery wrappers and small bits of plastic, These will now not be blown or washed into Port Phillip Bay.

Since starting the first Love Our Street group, in Elwood four years ago, the group has collected 530 kg of litter - from the streets of Elwood, a suburb that takes pride in its special character. We would love not to do this at all, but we know every little piece of litter on the streets has the potential to harm wildlife on land or in the sea.

LOS 3184 has shown the way for other "off-beach" Beach Patrol groups. There are now 15 other Love Our Street groups in Melbourne and one at Cape Woolamai: 16 babies in 4 years is some growth in numbers. Still more are in various stages of planning.

Thanks to all our wonderful members who come along when they can to take practical action to improve our local and wider environment.

LOS 3184 Elwood Quick Clean 7 September 2019

Our main effort for September will be Spring Clean the City operating from 9 am and starting at Freshwater Place Southbank However, some people are unable to come, so we had a small group clean this week. Chilly day. Lots of polystryrene beads in the leaf litter - corner of Mitford St and Glenhuntly Road. Elwood Ploggers' leader had reported a spill in the vicinity recently, so this was likely to have been material that had already blown away from the main site before council came to  clean up. Collected what we could.

Hope to see a huge turn out at Spring Clean the City.

LOS 3184 Elwood - "Casual" Cleans in August 2019

Individual members reported five individual actions in the month since our last group clean, four of them using the Litter Stopper App. This means the group leader gets to hear about your efforts and that the data adds to our overall collection data. Some of the attention was along Elster Creek after heavy rain events when the creek overflowed its banks, depositing litter on the grassy flats. Great going everyone. Picture is just one person's clean near her home.

Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186

Fathers' Day and still 11 volunteers came along to help collect over 22 kg of litter from the Nature Reserve. Concerned about the volume of polystryrene entering this lower section of Elster Creek now the flow has been restored following recent works and the number of used dog poo bags simply discarded, not binned!
