We were deeply shocked at the amount of rubbish on the beach during Septembers dog beach clean up. The rubbish was entwined throughout the seaweed and was layers thick. We worked on a small area for over an hour and I am sad to say that we hardly made a dent. The worst part was knowing that when the tide came in that all the rubbish was all going to be washed back out to the sea. We collected over 6kg, mainly collecting small bits of plastic.
