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.

LOS 3184 Elwood Community Clean 4 May

Though rain threatened, nine volunteers spent an hour cleaning up around Elwood shops near St Columba's, towards the beach and canal. More litter was collected than three months ago when we were last in this area! Glad we saved this from flowing into Port Phillip Bay where it would certainly harm creatures.

Our group of 14 volunteers collected a massive 24 kg again today: 142 drink containers that could be returned if only we had a Container Deposit Scheme; 1450 cigarette butts and one syringe. Just think of how much you helped the ocean today too! Great job everyone!

LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean April 6th

Six volunteers came along on a gorgeous Saturday morning. School holidays and several members were away.

We collected 5 kilograms of litter, including a horrible 1230 cigarette butts. That's double than the same time in the same area. Grrrr! Hotspots in garden beds near cafes and near development sites. We also collected 11 drink containers.

Love Our Street Elwood got in a day early: it wasn't too hot. Members came and went at different times, but we gathered lots of litter. More bottles and cans than we'd seen for a long time. We welcomed a new member, too.
