What a day! We were blessed with weather in the mid twenties and although it was quite warm we had 11 volunteers spend an hour collecting rubbish on a stretch of about 800m of our local foreshore. We collected 16 buckets worth of rubbish that are approximately 3kg's each resulting in almost 50kgs of rubbish. Well done to all the volunteers who braved the warm weather and got the job done.

Overall, we collected 120 recyclables including aluminium, glass and plastic. These still seem to be the most prolific pieces of rubbish we find down here. Close behind them are plastic bags and straws.
