LOS3150 - Glen Waverly

15
November Clean

A big thanks to the six volunteers who came on a very overcast day to clean around O'Sullivan Road/Snedden Drive, Glen Waverley. We were very fortunate to have a mostly dry window for our clean. Because of the heavy rain and winds in the previous days, much of what was on the streets and roads would have unfortunately been blown and washed into the storm water system.

Apart from the usual litter, we also found a new-looking Apple laptop and accessories in a bag thrown into the bushes around one of the car parks. Who knows how it got there, but it has been handed into the local police station who will hopefully be able to contact the owner and get it returned. 

Thanks to everyone who came, for helping to care for our local and wider environment. Every little bit of litter removed from the environment counts!

Three members did a trial clean based in Mount Street, Glen Waverley to look at the suitability of adding this site into our schedule for next year. This site is being considered because of the high foot traffic coming from the station and appears to be a good candidate!

Eight  volunteers came out on a lovely spring morning (although it was slightly smelly due to an overflowing sewerage pipe nearby!)  to help clean the streets around Bogong Avenue and Myrtle Street in Glen Waverley. We also welcomed a new member - thank you for your interest and hopefully we will see you at future events. Thank you everyone for your efforts; every piece of litter removed from the street is one less that can enter the stormwater system and make it's way to the creeks and bays. As usual, there were plenty of cigarettre butts (1750) that were picked up, many from the garden beds in the street and around the multi storey car park on Bogong Avenue.

LOS3150 May Clean

Luckily the rain held and five volunteers came to target the area around Glen Waverley Secondary College and the train station. We picked up a total of 7kg of litter, including 14 container deposit scheme bottles and cans and 2750 cigarette butts. Around 1750 of these came from the station, and many had obviously been there for some time as they had degraded and were easily mistaken for wood chips in the garden beds. A couple of abandoned trollies were reported via the Snap Sen Solve app, including one from Southern Cross Station!

LOS3150 Additional Clean Up Australia Day Event with Friends of the Children Foundation

LOS3150 joined forces with the Friends of the Children Foundation for their Clean Up Australia Day Event, held at Warrawee Park in Oakleigh.

Eleven volunteers helped clean streets around the park and the train station which was heavily littered with cigarette butts - we collected a total of 4500!!  The BBQ/play area at the park was littered with many beer bottles that a member of the public had cleaned up just prior so his children could play in a clean environment and unfortunately were not part of our data.

LOS 3150 January Clean - Our first Event!

The inaugural clean for Love Our Street 3150 was on a hot January morning, supported by 17 wonderful volunteers. We cleaned the streets around Bogong Avenue and Myrtle Street (around the area behind Kingsway and next to the Centrelink office). We had some interest and support from passers-by which was encouraging. A big thank you to Jill for coming out and supporting us on the day and for all her patient help in getting us this far!

We collected 4.65kg of general litter plus 56 bottles and cans that could have been returned via a container deposit scheme and 1000 cigarette butts, many of which were in the garden beds.
