Time: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Plastic bottles and their lids are one of the most common litter items found in the Yarra River and its surrounding parklands. Yarra Riverkeepers have seen the impact of plastic first-hand. Throughout 2019 – 2020 our Yarra River Blitz events collected more than 2600 plastic bottles and 2700 plastic lids!

On December 4, the Yarra Riverkeepers will be floating the issue of plastic pollution by paddling kayaks made from plastic bottles and lids down your Yarra.

Help us raise awareness on the importance of breaking the harmful cycle of plastic pollution by organising a clean up on December 4 or spending a day by your Yarra River and spotting the plastic kayaks in action!

To join the Yarra Plastic Paddle organise your own clean up event on December 4 via our Clean Up Australia Hub Page: register here.
