Elsternwick Park Love Our Street (EPLOS) 3186

Fathers' Day and still 11 volunteers came along to help collect over 22 kg of litter from the Nature Reserve. Concerned about the volume of polystryrene entering this lower section of Elster Creek now the flow has been restored following recent works and the number of used dog poo bags simply discarded, not binned!

Love Our Street 3184 Elwood August Community Clean

Hopefully the last of the chilly collection mornings! (Sorry, no guarantees.)
Thanks to the 14 volunteers who came along today, including two visitors and another member from Beach Patrol 3184 - Love Our Street exists to protect the beaches from litter. 

Great effort, but sadly everything in City of Port Phillip is now going to landfill'

At least the thousands of items of litter won't go to Port Phillip Bay.

Our volunteer efforts raised $375 in credits for the PP Ecocentre's Living Waters program: this current round will help local schools install water saving and improvement features in the catchment of Elster Creek.

Eight "Casual" cleans were reported by members and others in the community using the Litter Stopper App. Most of these were along Elster Creek after the rains at the start of the month that meant the creek broke its banks and litter was deposited on th egrassy verges. Other cleans were along Byron Street and at the foot of Point Ormond after winds blew litter onshore.

LOS 3184 Elwood July 2019 Community Clean

The sun shone to thank us for getting out of bed when it was so chilly!

Again, more litter was collected than three months ago when we were last in this area! 10 kg of litter; 17 bottles and cans and over 1500 cigarette butts (double compared to April when we were last in this zone). We might have expected butts to be fewer given the cooler weather sends more people indoors. Sadly not the case.

At least our efforts mean that these thousands of pieces of plastic and other litter will not reach Port Phillip Bay.

Our volunteer time raised $375 for the Ecocentre's Living Waters program to be share between water-saving and improvement projects for St. Columba's Primary School Elwood and St Kevin's Primary School Ormond.

Love Our Street 3197 Carrum: Nov 2018 - May 2019

Starting up in November 2018, LOS 3197 complements the efforts of Beach Patrol 3197. We remove litter from local streets working out from Carrum Primary School or near Carrum shops. This prevents litter washing down drains, into Patterson River and Port Phillip Bay.

LOS 3184 Elwood June 2019 Community Clean

Ten volunteers came along today, despite the chill. Thankfully, the wind had dropped and it remained fine.

It was great to welcome a new member and a young visitor. Thanks everyone for a great effort.

 

We collected over 14 kg of litter, including 16 drink bottles and cans, as well as 220 cigarette butts. Our efforts will mean the Ecocentre will have $300 to distribute to approved households and organisations as part of their Living Waters program, aimed at improving water quality in the Elster Creek Catchment.

In May, four reports came in from members using the Litter Stopper App. Areas covered included Mitford, Spray, Dickens and Herbert Streets; beside the canal and along the creek to St Kilda St.

In five volunteer hours, 9 kg of litter was gathered up: 8 bags full, 13 drink bottles and cans and 958 cigarette butts. All prevented from entering our drains, the canal and the sea.

Love Our Street 3183 & 3185 Community Clean 5 May 2019

A drizzly morning turned out beautiful to thank six volunteers who gave an hour this morning. Again, thousands of items of litter were prevented from entering Port Phillip Bay where creatures would be harmed by this toxic waste. Balaclava is much cleaner for your efforts.
