Wyndham LitterWatch is an award winning environmental project initiated by Wyndham’s major environmental organisations (Western Region Environment Centre, Werribee River Association, and Western Melbourne Catchments Network) in partnership with the Crossroads Uniting Church, Melbourne Water and Wyndham City Council.
The purpose of the project is to raise community awareness of the detrimental impacts of littering on our water ways, environment and our general amenity. The project set out to involve the whole community including business, government and educational organisations on a program of “Protect the Bay.”
Our second annual LitterWatch program for 2014 was formally launched by our Litter Champion Heidi Taylor of Tangaroa Blue at the Civic Centre on Tuesday 6 May. This was successful with 30 people in attendance who were provided with a stimulating program and engaged in a quality discussion. One excellent outcome of this meeting was the discussions held with residents of Campbell Cove who expressed interest in clean ups along the Werribee foreshore.
