We had a dedicated team of 22 volunteers join forces at Elwood Beach last Saturday morning.  It was a beautiful sunny day and we collected 36 kg of rubbish.  The majority of litter was cigarette butts and bottle tops.  We also collected several cans, plastic bags and other smaller items.  While the total weight collected was less than at previous sessions we have made a great impact as it's the small pieces that can be most harmful to wildlife on the beach and in the bay.
