August saw 7 volunteers help clean up Mentone Beach and record valuable data as to what ends up at our beaches.

We collected 10 bags of rubbish weighing 28.2 kgs including 34 bottles and cans.

3193 August 2017 Ricketts Point Beach Clean
We had 26 volunteers for our winter beach clean-up located at Beaumaris Life Savers Club. It was a gorgeous morning and not as windy as forecasted luckily!

Brilliant effort by everyone who came along. Overall, 18 full bags of litter were collected, roughly 50Kg in weight. The most common items of litter were cigarette butts (approx. 450), small plastics and bottles especially glass ones. Many of the bottles and cigarette butts were found around the life saver's building and car park area.
