Three out of the five litter trackers released at Darebin Creek travelled to the Yarra. The other two trackers were trapped in Darebin Creek. It is interesting to see that the three trackers travelled to the Yarra despite Darebin Creek narrowing down and being windy in parts with dense riparian vegetation. This shows that litter that ends up in Darebin Creek has the potential to end up and contribute to the litter problem in the Yarra. Two litter trackers were captured by litter traps in the Yarra, indicating that traps along the Yarra are quite efficient at preventing litter from entering the Bay.
