Lutana Woodlands clean-up success

COMMUNITY spirit was thriving in Lutana recently when 16 residents gave up their Sunday morning to participate in a volunteer clean-up in Lutana Woodlands Reserve.

The event was organised by the Lutana Woodlands Group with support from Glenorchy City Council.

Volunteers collected nearly four cubic metres of dumped rubbish and garden waste from the reserve.

This included piles of old carpet, dumped nappies, a car tyre, an exhaust pipe, broken fencing, dozens of glass beer bottles and cans, bamboo and other invasive weeds, chicken wire, concrete rubble, and piles of plastic.

Also in attendance to lend a hand at the event was Glenorchy Mayor Kristie Johnston, Deputy Mayor Matt Stevenson and Alderman Simon Fraser.

The Lutana Woodlands Group was formed 12 months ago by a passionate group of residents who are taking an active role in caring for their local reserve in partnership with Council.

The group’s next activity will be a tree planting event on 28 July 2019.
