LOS 3183 & 3185 Ripponlea: last clean for 2019

A small, but happy band braved the chilly wind and soon warmed up as we cleaned Balaclava. Our haul totalled 12.5 kg: 200 butts (bringing the annual total to over 12,000), 32 bottles and cans, one syringe. Thanks for a great effort over the year everyone. Thanks to Las Chicas for the warming drinks.

LOS 3183 & 3185 Balaclava & Ripponlea Oct 2019

A small group of determined volunteers spent an hour collecting litter near Balaclava Station and shops. People came and went at different times, so no people pic today. We collected 4 kg of litter, including 800 cigarette butts (plastic), lots of other small pieces of plastic and confectionery wrappers. That's over 11,000 butts so far this year!

The photo shows what was collected from one of the pits around one single street tree near the station: 63 butts and half a bag of other rubbish, much of it plastic.

Quat Quatta Avenue had significant impact from plastic "ticker tape" possibly after an event. 

Glen Eira Road between Brighton and Orrong Roads had large and small chunks of polystyrene and lots of confectionery wrapper fragments.

Seven volunteers collected over 2 kilograms of litter: mostly small fragments that become very mobile in wind or rain events. As ever, cigarette butts were the most common item: 950 collected today.

Gorgeous morning. Our group collected 4 kg of litter in an hour from streets near William St Reserve - 1200 cigarette butts, 19 drink containers that could be returned if only Vic government had one.

Well done crew - our suburb is cleaner, our bay creatures are spared this rubbish and the gardens planted with the help of local volunteers won't be spoilt by litter.
