12 Volunteers join a clean-up, starting from the Wedge Street Piazza. There was an astounding amount of rubbish, and we were not able to address all of it. 66 kilos collected, 200 bottles and cans, and 30 syringes. There are some very concerning sites behind the shops, that directly face the Werribee River, that are being reported to Wyndham Council. Fantastic effort by the volunteers who once again, including Denis who bought his trailer, which was incredibly handy as LOS coordinator Lisa forgot to book the council truck!

Mt Eliza Beach Patrol

This mornings clean took place at the northern end of Canadian Bay beach. Very little sand and tidal line plastics, straws, rubbish were found - which was fantastic! Nearly all rubbish collected came from the cliff and embankment areas amongst the bushes. We had 8 new faces for our group of 27 volunteers - thanks to all of you!

Local passerby mentioned that Daveys Bay was particularly dirty with lots of rubbish - we may focus our efforts there next time.

This month we had a clash with Spring Clean The City and Mentone Beach Patrol being on the same day

so a switch was made and our start time was moved to 2pm.

We had at least 5 Mentone Beach Patrollers attending Spring Clean the City which was great

but this probably effected our numbers at Mentone where we had 3 volunteers.

Quite a lot of rubbish was collected for our September clean.

13 bags of rubbish weighing 53kgs including 66 bottles and cans.

Or for the database 10 bags of rubbish weighing 38.9kgs plus 66 bottles and cans.

See you next month,

Paul.
