Clean up with Elk groupDuring March 2022, MCMC coordinated a community litter creek clean-up program that removed thousands of pieces of litter and almost 300 kgs in weight from the Merri, Edgars and Moonee Ponds Creeks. This included: 18 staff from the Darebin fashion design business, Elk (photo); almost 40 cubs and adults from the 4th Brunswick Cubs; Glenroy residents, Flower and Vedia, running local clean-up days; 15 people joining Friends of Merri Creek's monthly litter clean-up; 20 Scouts and Venturers from Clifton Hill Scout Group; 10 staff members from the engineering firm, GHD; and 10 keen volunteers from Whittlesea Environment Action Youth Group.

These group’s efforts have been documented on the Litterwatch Vic data portal, enabling the main pollution hot spots to be tracked and help reduce litter at its source.
