The Rotary Club of Drysdale have been out and about again, following all the Covid restrictions of course. Many of these ‘Butt Bins’ were installed between lock downs with social distancing.
The Litter Management on the Northern Bellarine Project was an initiative of the Victorian
Government where a grant was made available to distribute and install Butt Bins along the Bellarine foreshore. Jane & Wayne from Bellarine Bayside Foreshore Committee worked with the Rotary Club of Drysdale to determine the best place to install the 5 allocated bins. The assistance of the City of Greater Geelong in providing the mounting pole is also acknowledged.
The aim is of course is to get smokers to ‘Butt Out’ in the bins provided rather than throwing their butt ends on the ground. This is one of the ways we can take care of our environment and continue to beautify our own back yard on the Bellarine Peninsula.
