We support community members who safely collect litter within Moreland.
We can provide a collection if you contact us in advance and complete the form below to organise a pick up location.
Register your community litter collection event
If you plan to hold a community litter collection we encourage you to register your event by sending an email to Merri Creek Management Committee's (MCMC) Rapid Response to Litter Co-ordinator Julia Cirillo.
Registering your event provides you with public liability insurance cover as well as access to a litter clean up kit, which contains gloves, high vis vests, bags, first aid equipment and data sheets.
MCMC can also assist with finding a safe site to collect litter and training as well as how to accurately record litter data.
Additional resources are available on the Friends of Merri Creek website such as a voluteer registration form and site safety checklist along with other information to help you keep safe when collecting litter.
Let Council know where you will be collecting litter
Please use the Community Litter Collection form to notify Council of your litter collection event, including Clean Up Australia Day events. Include your contact details and where you plan to leave your litter so that we know where to pick it up or can get in touch with you if we need to arrange a different collection point.
