Luckily the rain held and five volunteers came to target the area around Glen Waverley Secondary College and the train station. We picked up a total of 7kg of litter, including 14 container deposit scheme bottles and cans and 2750 cigarette butts. Around 1750 of these came from the station, and many had obviously been there for some time as they had degraded and were easily mistaken for wood chips in the garden beds. A couple of abandoned trollies were reported via the Snap Sen Solve app, including one from Southern Cross Station!
