Seven volunteers, including two new members, helped to clean the area around Bogong Avenue and Myrtle Street, Glen Waverley. The streets appeared quite clean initially although the area around the Centrelink offices had a fair amount of litter. There weren't as many cigarette butts as expected, but we still managed to pick up 1,250, bringing our total for the year to 14,000.

With Christmas around the corner and a different starting time
we only had 4 volunteers this month but we collected 9 bags of rubbish weighing 26.2 kgs including 52 bottles and cans.
Overall we had a good year with many new faces joining in.
There is no real sign that the litter problem is reducing yet but we are definitely helping to point out the problem and at the same time reducing the harm.
Thanks everyone at Mentone Beach Patrol.
Have a great Christmas,
Paul.
