Reducing litter in Melbourne's waterways (online)
Over the last three years, Melbourne Water has run a Litter Action Project supported by funding from DELWP’s Port Phillip Bay Fund. The project involved working with the general community, schools and environmental groups to conduct clean-ups and audits at litter hotspots in their local area. Data from the litter audits was used to identify the most common litter items in the hotspot, which then informed the local action taken to reduce this key item.
Join Dr Teresa Jane Mackintosh, Waterwatch Coordinator and groups from Banyule and Nillumbik, as well as other parts of Melbourne to hear about the outcomes of the project. It will also discuss how to create a source reduction plan and strategies for reducing litter in your local area.
