LOS 3184 Elwood Clean Up Australia Day

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.

LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean

Prevented from entering the sea:

9 bags of litter (think: hundreds of pieces)

8 kg of litter in total

33 drink containers that should be returned vi a Container Deposit Scheme if Victoria had a CDS!

255 cigarette butts - about half the number compared to the same time last year. Can we hope this is a downward trend?

LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean: Happy New Year Jan 6 2019

Great to welcome people back for 2019. Eleven members were able to come along.

As usual, Elwood looked pretty clean. Still, we gathered 10 kg + of litter from the Village: 1288 cigarette butts, 28 bottles and cans that should be returned via a Container Deposit Scheme (when oh when Victoria?) and hundreds of small plastic fragments (wrappers, cable ties, hair ties, broken hard plastic, polystyrene foam….).

 Litter hotspots near building sites – if you see an issue, please report it to Port Phillip Council using the Snap Send Solve app, making sure the GPS reading gives an accurate address – or note it in the text of your report.

LOS 3184 Elwood Casual Street Clean New Year's Day

 

 Just to wish our neighbours in one street a Happy New Year. It's a street that has high pedestrian and vehicle traffic in and out of Elwood, so it's a litter hotspot.

Happy New Year Byron Street.

LOS 3184 Elwood Community Clean November 2018
Lovely Spring day with some of our regulars away. Our team put in 13 hours overall, focussing our efforts around Elwood West shops, St Columba's church and school. Membbers also used the app "Snap Send Solve" to report dumped rubbish. We celebrated our birthday again, so members who couldn't attend last time got a slice of cake and others enjoyed a second bite!

Great to also welcome two people who are planning to launch LOS 3150 Glen Waverley. Our family grows with this the fifth new group: four others with dates already set in November & December. See home page.

Beautiful Spring day - and 16 volunteers gave an hour to take litter off Elwood Streets. Happy to celebrate our third birthday in such wonderful company.
Welcome to our new members.Thank you everyone.

17 kg may not weigh much but it represents thousands of pieces of litter that would otherwise end up in Port Phillip Bay after rain or windy conditions.
2160 cigarette butts - globally this litter is the most common. Smokers, please bin your butts. They are plastic!
22 drink bottles and can that should be returned via a Container Deposit Scheme - demand that Victorian politicians legislate for this. There's a State election in November!

LOS 3184 Elwood Street Clean September 1 2018

Thanks for a great start to Spring

On a cool morning the sun shone for the fifteen volunteers who joined in today to make Elwood cleaner. It was a pleasure to welcome a new member and two visitors: one from interstate and another who will launch a new LOS group in the City of Monash.
We collected 13.6 kg of litter taking our total so far this year to 110 kg. Today's haul included 485 cigarette butts, 10 drink containers that could be recycled in a Container Deposit Scheme and lots of soft and hard plastic fragments. Polystyrene was a dreadful problem along the creek.
