LOS 3184 Elwood July 2019 Community Clean

The sun shone to thank us for getting out of bed when it was so chilly!

Again, more litter was collected than three months ago when we were last in this area! 10 kg of litter; 17 bottles and cans and over 1500 cigarette butts (double compared to April when we were last in this zone). We might have expected butts to be fewer given the cooler weather sends more people indoors. Sadly not the case.

At least our efforts mean that these thousands of pieces of plastic and other litter will not reach Port Phillip Bay.

Our volunteer time raised $375 for the Ecocentre's Living Waters program to be share between water-saving and improvement projects for St. Columba's Primary School Elwood and St Kevin's Primary School Ormond.

Love Our Street 3197 Carrum: Nov 2018 - May 2019

Starting up in November 2018, LOS 3197 complements the efforts of Beach Patrol 3197. We remove litter from local streets working out from Carrum Primary School or near Carrum shops. This prevents litter washing down drains, into Patterson River and Port Phillip Bay.

LOS 3184 Elwood June 2019 Community Clean

Ten volunteers came along today, despite the chill. Thankfully, the wind had dropped and it remained fine.

It was great to welcome a new member and a young visitor. Thanks everyone for a great effort.

 

We collected over 14 kg of litter, including 16 drink bottles and cans, as well as 220 cigarette butts. Our efforts will mean the Ecocentre will have $300 to distribute to approved households and organisations as part of their Living Waters program, aimed at improving water quality in the Elster Creek Catchment.

In May, four reports came in from members using the Litter Stopper App. Areas covered included Mitford, Spray, Dickens and Herbert Streets; beside the canal and along the creek to St Kilda St.

In five volunteer hours, 9 kg of litter was gathered up: 8 bags full, 13 drink bottles and cans and 958 cigarette butts. All prevented from entering our drains, the canal and the sea.

Love Our Street 3183 & 3185 Community Clean 5 May 2019

A drizzly morning turned out beautiful to thank six volunteers who gave an hour this morning. Again, thousands of items of litter were prevented from entering Port Phillip Bay where creatures would be harmed by this toxic waste. Balaclava is much cleaner for your efforts.

LOS 3184 Elwood Community Clean 4 May

Though rain threatened, nine volunteers spent an hour cleaning up around Elwood shops near St Columba's, towards the beach and canal. More litter was collected than three months ago when we were last in this area! Glad we saved this from flowing into Port Phillip Bay where it would certainly harm creatures.

Our group of 14 volunteers collected a massive 24 kg again today: 142 drink containers that could be returned if only we had a Container Deposit Scheme; 1450 cigarette butts and one syringe. Just think of how much you helped the ocean today too! Great job everyone!

LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean April 6th

Six volunteers came along on a gorgeous Saturday morning. School holidays and several members were away.

We collected 5 kilograms of litter, including a horrible 1230 cigarette butts. That's double than the same time in the same area. Grrrr! Hotspots in garden beds near cafes and near development sites. We also collected 11 drink containers.
