Container Deposit Scheme
Great to hear Victoria will have a split responsibility Container Deposit Scheme commencing in 2023. This is good news for charities and small businesses; with billions of drink containers returned; and lots of accessible refund points. And very good news for our environment.
Our 4 Litter Blitz groups have removed 17,656 kilos of litter by a very generous community giving 3,202 volunteer hours of direct support. Get involved. Sponsor. Donate. Volunteer.
National Day of Action #SourceToSea
Beach Patrol 3030 joined Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) for their National Day of Action on Sunday 11 April 2021. Beach Patrol hosted a clean between 11:30 to 12:30 and CVA ran a second clean from 1pm to 2pm. CVA, Werribee River Association, and other environmental groups met in JD Bellin Reserve, offering displays, and experts in the field of plastic pollution. The National day of Action starts with us.
Sacred Earth, Sacred People
Werribee River Association participated in a local demonstration, part of a major global multi-faith Day of Action to ‘sound the alarm’ for the climate. We joined with the Justice Task Group at Crossroads Uniting Church for the Sacred Earth, Sacred People event on 11 March 2021.
These guys joined us for a business clean-up along the Federation Trail on Friday 26 February 2021. Okay, don’t be shocked, but 400 kilos collected in 2 hours by 11 of us.
Thank you Paper-Go-Round, McGlashan Painting, Werribee Business & Tourism Association, Wyndham Council, and community volunteers.
in 2020 we ran a Nature in Wyndham Photo Competition. Quite timely given how so many of our community events were canceled due to the pandemic. Over 150 entrants and 850 photos submitted. The 5 winners are on display at Pacific Werribee.
