Very successful clean up in the new Riverwalk Estate. 16 volunteers (many children) managed to collect an enormous 263kgs of litter from this site that when it rain, feeds into the Werribee River. The figures are a bit alarming and include 68kgs of plastic, 45kgs of cardboard, 30kg of styrofoam, and only 7.5kg of food type containers, with only 20 bottles and cans. This is rubbish is clearly from the building of new housing estates, even though this site was cleaned around Christmas by the developers. Thanks WRivA Science Officer for getting us down to this location.

We also collected 7 shopping trolleys, about 4000 cigarette butts, 50+ straws, some electronic waste, an uncountable amount of syringe containers and syringes - probably between 30-50, and a collection of perfectly good reusable times: small watering can, hand towels, toilet holders, rubbish bins, shower caddy, water spray bottle, apron, and a full can of oven cleaner!

17 volunteers came along to collect 63 kilos of litter around the Piazza and in front of the Werribee River. There was a lot of large pieces of plastic, some building items, half a broken chair from one of the shops and 122 bottles and cans were collected. These could have been cashed in if Victoria had a cash for container scheme.

16 volunteers helped to remove 113 kilos of litter, including 113 bottles and cans. Some of the volunteers also spread some mulch around a new site that we hope to plant out next year, continuing with the work to beautify the station. Ms Butt joined us for a boogie and reminded our smokers to use the ashtray.

12 Volunteers join a clean-up, starting from the Wedge Street Piazza. There was an astounding amount of rubbish, and we were not able to address all of it. 66 kilos collected, 200 bottles and cans, and 30 syringes. There are some very concerning sites behind the shops, that directly face the Werribee River, that are being reported to Wyndham Council. Fantastic effort by the volunteers who once again, including Denis who bought his trailer, which was incredibly handy as LOS coordinator Lisa forgot to book the council truck!
