Wonderful to have willing volunteers in all sorts of weather to remove litter from the streets of Carrum and near Patterson River. These champions are protecting our bay creatures with every item they pick up.

LOS 3184 Elwood Quick Clean 7 September 2019

Our main effort for September will be Spring Clean the City operating from 9 am and starting at Freshwater Place Southbank However, some people are unable to come, so we had a small group clean this week. Chilly day. Lots of polystryrene beads in the leaf litter - corner of Mitford St and Glenhuntly Road. Elwood Ploggers' leader had reported a spill in the vicinity recently, so this was likely to have been material that had already blown away from the main site before council came to  clean up. Collected what we could.

Hope to see a huge turn out at Spring Clean the City.

LOS 3184 Elwood - "Casual" Cleans in August 2019

Individual members reported five individual actions in the month since our last group clean, four of them using the Litter Stopper App. This means the group leader gets to hear about your efforts and that the data adds to our overall collection data. Some of the attention was along Elster Creek after heavy rain events when the creek overflowed its banks, depositing litter on the grassy flats. Great going everyone. Picture is just one person's clean near her home.

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.
