MEMBERS STATEMENT: Clean Up Australia Day

Mr HIBBINS — On Clean Up Australia Day I spent my Sunday morning picking up cigarette butts from around Windsor Plaza and the Windsor railway station. I was joined by Jason Ball, Stonnington Greens and the community, who also cleaned up the Windsor siding and Gladstone Gardens, where bottles and cans made up a significant portion of the waste collected. It is clear from the amount of waste we picked up that Victoria needs a container deposit scheme as well as a ban on plastic bags and smoking in outdoor dining and drinking areas to keep our communities clean.
