100 bottles and cans

This month was a bit different where we had our Beach Patrol on a Monday and it turned out to be quite a successful move.

We had 8 volunteers who colected 12 bags of rubbish weighing 17.3 kgs.

So if for some reason the regular 3rd Saturday of the month can't go ahead for our Beach Patrol

we'll be quite confident that a weekday clean up will work.

We joined with the Rye Action Group and collected 35 bags of rubbish. Also included in the collection were an old basketball ring and stand, an armchair, beach chairs, bottles, cans, a large styrofoam box and the always present cigarette butts and chupachups sticks.



An estimated 35 kilograms in weight, excluding the large items.



Well done to 59 volunteers, 39 adults and 18 children! We were sustained by sausages cooked and donated by the Lions Club—a big thank you!

This year we decided that we would clean up Australia a day early.  Why?  Because Clean Up Australia Day, on 1st March 2015, clashed with a triathlon on the Elwood beach.  So on the Saturday morning we met on the very busy foreshore and collected 17kg of rubbish with a turn out of 20 volunteers.  Great work team!

A 3207Beachpatorl member organised her own clean on the banks of the Westgate park at the punt for CUAD.  This is always a high rubbish area with a lot of debris coming down the Yarra river.  But not to say the locals on Lorimer St do not throw away a lot of litter too.

A massive 15 large sacks were filled.  278 Bottles and cans
