Shopping trolleys are one of the biggest items that litter the Darebin Creek and DCMC has pulled hundreds of trolleys out of the creek since 2003.
Everyone can help the Darebin Creek by taking responsibility for their own rubbish, picking up litter or reporting someone you see littering or polluting the Darebin Creek. The EPA pollution Hotline is open 24 hours and should be used to report any spills such as paint and oils into the Darebin Creek. Noting the size of the pollution slick, colour and describe the location, particularly if a drain outlet is the discharge point. Some drains along the Darebin Creek have signs with a number to help in the location of pollution points, if one is present please quote the number printed on the sign.
