Community litter collections

Council support for community litter collections

Council supports community members who safely collect litter within Moreland.

If large amounts of litter are collected, we can provide a collection if you contact Council in advance to arrange a pick up location.

Litter collections along Merri Creek

If you have a community litter collection along the Merri Creek you can register your event with Friends of Merri Creek. A range of resources are available on the Friends of Merri Creek website to help you keep safe when collecting litter.

Registering your event with Friends of Merri Creek provides you with coverage under their public liability insurance, access to their clean up kit (which contains gloves, hi vis vests, bags, first aid equipment and data sheets) along with other helpful advice and resources for the safe collection of littered items.

For further information please visit the Friends of Merri Creek website.

Clean Up Australia Day collections

Council encourages community members, schools and businesses to participate in the annual Clean Up Australia Day events and can help by picking up collected litter.
