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.

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.

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.

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.

 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.
