Loathing litter!

29 Oct 2019

Loathing litter! Image

By Janette Corcoran

LOS3008 held a second clean-up on Sunday, October 20 with more than 30 enthusiastic locals picking up over 12kg of rubbish – which, again, featured many, many cigarette butts!

Among our dedicated contingent was Linda Dugan, proprietor of Petal Back Clothing, which provides adaptive apparel for people with limited mobility. Together with fellow local resident, John Kennedy, they formed one of several tag teams that attacked the central grate along NewQuay.

Asked why she gives her time to de-littering Docklands, Linda said that she hated seeing litter as she walked around. “It seems to say that we don’t care ... and nothing could be further from the truth.”

“I support LOS3008 because I know Docklands to be a caring community – we just need to show it more.”

The next LOS3008 clean-up is scheduled for Sunday, November 17.

Meet at 10.45am at MPavilion installation located at 752 Collins Street, Docklands (opposite tram stop D16).

Don’t forget to bring your gloves!
