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.
