Despite the heavy rain beforehand twenty two 3182 Beach Patrollers braved the elements to clean up the St Kilda West beach.

We were rewarded with a break in the rain and collected 80kg of litter, plus one bicycle.

We continued our practise of collecting cigarette butts separately to send to Terracycle for recycling and found far less than on our last clean up of the St Kilda main beach.

We were visited by MOOP (Matter Out Of Place) Patrol who came long to film Guy Boston (our founder) and us for a video they were making about Beach Patrol.
