LOS 3184 Elwood Street

LOS 3184 Elwood

Our volunteers help look after our local neighbourhood streets to stop litter getting to the bay.  LOS3184 conducts a clean along one of its streets every month.

The distinctive LOS tee shirts of the volunteers make for a colourful addition to the streets once a month on Saturday mornings.

Most Recent LOS 3184 Group Activities

LOS 3184 Elwood Quick Clean 7 September 2019 by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au

Our main effort for September will be Spring Clean the City operating from 9 am and starting at Freshwater Place Southbank However, some people are unable to come, so we had a small group clean this week. Chilly day. Lots of polystryrene beads in the leaf litter - corner of Mitford St and Glenhuntly Road. Elwood Ploggers' leader had reported a spill in the vicinity recently, so this was likely to have been material that had already blown away from the main site before council came to  clean up. Collected what we could.

Hope to see a huge turn out at Spring Clean the City.

LOS 3184 Elwood - "Casual" Cleans in August 2019 by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au

Individual members reported five individual actions in the month since our last group clean, four of them using the Litter Stopper App. This means the group leader gets to hear about your efforts and that the data adds to our overall collection data. Some of the attention was along Elster Creek after heavy rain events when the creek overflowed its banks, depositing litter on the grassy flats. Great going everyone. Picture is just one person's clean near her home.

Love Our Street 3184 Elwood August Community Clean by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au

Hopefully the last of the chilly collection mornings! (Sorry, no guarantees.)
Thanks to the 14 volunteers who came along today, including two visitors and another member from Beach Patrol 3184 - Love Our Street exists to protect the beaches from litter. 

Great effort, but sadly everything in City of Port Phillip is now going to landfill'

At least the thousands of items of litter won't go to Port Phillip Bay.

Our volunteer efforts raised $375 in credits for the PP Ecocentre's Living Waters program: this current round will help local schools install water saving and improvement features in the catchment of Elster Creek.
