Keeping Hawthorn clean and beautiful

Recently two initiatives have caught my attention that aim to keep rubbish out off our waterways, green spaces and streets. Really anywhere that isn’t the bin. These initiatives are making a real difference in our community but need your help to fully work.

Melbourne Waterway Blitz

Melbourne Water are looking for hot-spot locations to collect litter, remove weeds and undertake other amenity improvements.

There are already people who have jumped on board to help keep the Yarra clean through Hawthorn. Simply head to the Melbourne Water website (link below).

The Waterway Blitz is part of the $500 million State Government¬†Working for Victoria¬†initiative. Melbourne Water has created more than 100 new jobs with the majority of those roles aimed at protecting and beautifying the city’s waterways. This is a great opportunity to focus extra attention on caring for the city’s waterways and land.
