Spring Clean Your Patch on Sunday 18 October 2020 from 9 am to 12 pm is hosted by Spring Clean Your Patch. Get the Litter Stopper App and get started. This is an event for everyone who cares about the clogging of our ocean, streams, parks and local streets; filled with litter and single use plastic that ends up there.

This is an invitation for all Victorians to gather their bags, safety gear, personal protective equipment and head out into your neighbourhood for an hour between 9 am to 12 pm and spring clean your local environment within the currently allowed 5km radius. Join the crew to raise awareness about waste and the issues of single-use plastics. See full details on the event page.

Victoria is in the midst of a recycling and waste crisis, what with COVID-19 bringing on a steep rise in single-use plastic waste. On Sunday the 18th, pick up rubbish you find and log it in the Litter Stopper App. This collected data will be used to place pressure on state government and councils to deal with the issues and advocate for a container deposit scheme. The pressure of people power is working as government and council are working at rolling out a new four bin waste and recycling system, and a container deposit scheme from 2023.

Your help is needed to keep advocating for plastic waste reform and recycling across the state. read here for more information about the Litter Stopper App. Log the collected rubbish information in the app and share your experience and the waste you've collected on Instagram and Facebook and include hashtags #springcleanyourpatch #stopsingleuseplastics

Be sure to dispose of waste appropriately and stay COVID safe!
