 Only 23 bottles and cans collected

Cigarette Butt Survey Rouse St Port Melbourne

Some members of 3207 Beachpatrol performed another Cig butt survey along Rouse St in Port Melbourne.  We had performed one along the same St this time last year so were curious to see if there was any difference.  The weather was quite bad with heavy showers on and off so we only surveyed and cleaned approx. 100 m either side of Bay St..  This was a shorter length than last year but captured most of the businesses which is where the littered butts come from  Thanks to the people that turned out.

Results

2150 butts over 200 m of street.  Both sides.  That makes on average 10 butts for every meter of street.   This is appalling behaviour of smokers.

21 bottles and cans also collected.
