A group of people from 3106BeachPatrol and Scab duty ( a sister organization in Williamstown) went to a less popular beach to collect rubbish there.  The beach had little sand but more Mangrove type trees.    In one hour they collect 1260 bottles and cans!  That was an unbelievable mess they cleaned up. 

For a good video of the collection go to their facebook page 

This just show again how badly Victoria needs a cash for container scheme.  Our govt needs to come a visit these sites rather than listen to lobbyists.
