3018 beach group

19kgs of litter and 600 cigarette butts in one hour with only 13 litter enthusiasts on a Sunday afternoon, we call that a win! A few of the regulars and a few first timers got the job done and then some.

 

It's very clear summer has started again with the bins overflowing, people forgetting that we have only one planet and family fun bbqs turning into litter fests without intent.

 

The job is not yet done,but it is for coordinators Yumi and Gilbert, so if you feel that you can help coordinate (one of the) new litter pick Sundays for 2020, get in touch any time.

 

Thanks to all who attended, we might have been small in numbers, but we were big in results!

Another clean up done for October thanks to 30 big and small volunteers. We had a slightly smaller catch in kilos, but all those plastic wrappers make a big mess, even if they weigh next to nothing! We also found 1,750 cigarette butts and close to 50 containers (bottle and cans). Well done all!

Our next 3018 Altona cleanup will be on Sunday 10 November, so if you feel like joining in, come find us from 3-4pm on the corner of Pier Street and Esplanade.

We had a massive turn-out on the first day of Spring with lots of helpers from Geocaching of Victoria and Altona Primary. 58 volunteer altogether managed a respectable 25kgs of rubbish and a record-breaking 4,000 cigarette butts. It was clean when we started, but pristine when we left. 55 minutes of good weather and 5 minutes of blisterting rain andh ail at the end saw us beat a hasty retreat. This hadn't happened for 13 cleans in a row, so we can hardly complain about a great community effort once more.

We made the most of the sunny weather and 20 volunteers who came and helped out to collect 45 containers, 10kgs of rubbish and 1,000 cigarette butts. It wa s good to see that the streets and beach were clean. Maybe it's because it Winter, but we like to think it's because people are becoming better at throwing rubbish in the bin.

It was a lovely sunny day, which saw 25 people turn up to help collect 24 kgs of rubbish, 54 containers and about 1,500 cigarette butts. It's clear that SUmmer is over and the beach has seen less traffic, but also that council keeps an eye on things and was out combining the beach 2 days before us. We also had more than a few members of the public come up for a chat and the business cards are proving very useful too. We'll order more t-shirts from the left-over grant money and see if we can get some food organised for next event, which will be near the boat ramp and hopefully we'll see even more school kids as Adeline will do some additional promotional work!
