A small group of determined volunteers spent an hour collecting litter near Balaclava Station and shops. People came and went at different times, so no people pic today. We collected 4 kg of litter, including 800 cigarette butts (plastic), lots of other small pieces of plastic and confectionery wrappers. That's over 11,000 butts so far this year! The photo shows what was collected from one of the pits around one single street tree near the station: 63 butts and half a bag of other rubbish, much of it plastic.
