Three reports came in using the Litter Stopper app: 7 volunteer hours, 11.3 kg of litter (11 bags), 29 drink containers, 360 cigarette butts. All this litter was cleaned up from beside the Elwood Canal and its feeder - Elster Creek. Port Phillip Council responded to a Snap Send Solve by visiting a development site that had significant litter directly beside the canal. Council officers required a number of strategies to be put in place and undertook to monitor compliance. It's worth reporting issues and keeping an eye on our neighbourhoods.
