Great to welcome people back for 2019.

As usual, Elwood looked pretty clean. Still, we gathered 10 kg + of litter from the Village: 1288 cigarette butts, 28 bottles and cans that should be returned via a Container Deposit Scheme (when oh when Victoria?) and hundreds of small plastic fragments (wrappers, cable ties, hair ties, broken hard plastic, polystyrene foam….).

 Litter hotspots near building sites – if you see an issue, please report it to Port Phillip Council using the Snap Send Solve app, making sure the GPS reading gives an accurate address – or note it in the text of your report.
