Rapid response to litter cleanups after high rainfall (2014)
Friends of Merri Creek Inc
Project duration: 2017-2020
Location: Merri Creek (Epping, Brunswick, Kew)
Merri Creek runs through the North Eastern Suburbs, before ultimately joining the Yarra River at Yarra Bend. The project will promote the activation of community groups and key stakeholders to undertake rapid response to waterway clean up after a heavy rain or flood event, before plastics disintegrate into pieces too small and fragile to remove.
