Beaches in the Sandringham electorate will be given a clean-up in the latest round of Litter Hotspots funding from the Victorian Coalition Government.

Member for Sandringham Murray Thompson said the Napthine Government was investing $13,637 to help continue to improve the health of the Port Phillip Bay through the City of Kingston

“This funding supports our local councils, community groups and businesses to deliver litter prevention and clean-up programs at litter hotspot areas in the Port Phillip Bay," Mr Thompson said.
“These projects will help clean up our local areas and promote responsible disposal of litter and prevent it from polluting our waterways.

“This investment is part of the Coalition Government’s commitment to a cleaner and safer environment in the Sandringham electorate.

The ‘Filter it out’ project run by Kingston City Council funded through this round of grants will enable community engagement, education and enforcement by working with local community groups, foreshore clubs and businesses near key hotspot locations.

This announcement is part of the Napthine Government’s $7 million Cleaner Yarra River and Port Phillip Bay Plan.
