Our crack squad of LoveOurStreeters cleaned the side of the railway line along Normanby Road, Caulfield North, collecting 63.3 kilograms of material, including 17.5 kgs of landfill, 14.7kgs of recyclables, and 31.1kgs of hard waste. This is a lot for a half-hour with only 13 volunteers - a special #Trashtag clean-up in between regular monthly cleanups. 172 CDS cans and bottles and 26 Coffee Cups were also found, but fortunately very few cigarette butts. Hard waste included: 2 hubcaps, a streetlight, a seat, a clothesline, traffic signs and pillars, a blanket and car parts. Honour those marching down our streets today, but don't forget to get out and clean them too.
