Love Our Street 3184

12

As a trial, 200 residences were letter-boxed to turn out for an hour on Clean Up Australia Day. Well, it was a lonely affair. 

 

However, the residents now have the results of what was removed from their patch: 3.75 kg litter - 364 cigarette butts, lots of small plastic fragments (hard and soft), 9 bottles, 5 cans and a syringe, to say nothing of small items of hardware (nuts, screws, washers).

 

Undeterred, we press on!

LOS3184 - Clean Up Australia Day (one day early)
LOS3184's action for Clean Up Australia Day was Saturday 4 March. Nine volunteers collected over ten and a half kilograms of litter: 610 cigarette butts, hundreds of hard and soft plastic fragments, 19 bottles and 21 cans. Our patch is better for it and so are our birds, animals and sea creatures. Our youngest volunteer was rewarded with treasure: a tennis ball and a marble! Oh! and if you see Telco technicians working at any street corner service post, please ask them to ensure there are no snippets of wire left behind - they could injure animals such as our St Kilda Little Penguins if they washed into the stormwater and Port Phillip Bay.
