LOS 3184 Elwood Street

LOS 3184 Elwood

Our volunteers help look after our local neighbourhood streets to stop litter getting to the bay.  LOS3184 conducts a clean along one of its streets every month.

The distinctive LOS tee shirts of the volunteers make for a colourful addition to the streets once a month on Saturday mornings.

LOS 3184 Elwood July 2019 Community Clean by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au

The sun shone to thank us for getting out of bed when it was so chilly!

Again, more litter was collected than three months ago when we were last in this area! 10 kg of litter; 17 bottles and cans and over 1500 cigarette butts (double compared to April when we were last in this zone). We might have expected butts to be fewer given the cooler weather sends more people indoors. Sadly not the case.

At least our efforts mean that these thousands of pieces of plastic and other litter will not reach Port Phillip Bay.

Our volunteer time raised $375 for the Ecocentre's Living Waters program to be share between water-saving and improvement projects for St. Columba's Primary School Elwood and St Kevin's Primary School Ormond.

Elster Creeek - Wave St to Glenhuntly Road: casual clean

LOS 3184 Elwood June 2019 Community Clean by 3184-1@loveourstreet.com.au

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.
