We are now consistently getting good numbers for our Beach Patrols which is great and the beach seems to have less rubbish which hopefully is a sign that not only are we good at picking up rubbish but that less rubbish is actually being dropped.
Yesterday we had 10 volunteers and we picked up 5 bags of rubbish weighing 24.1kgs which included 52 bottles & cans.
Thanks everyone,
Paul.

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.

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.
