Had a very windy and slightly chilly morning for our May clean up, 25 brave and dedicated volunteers turned up to clean up the Dromana beach and foreshore.

In total 41 kg of rubbish was collected including 1370 cig butts and 47 glass bottles and one skink was rescued.

Strange and sad things we found were a bed made out of about 80 local newspapers and in a different area 10 empty wine bottle, I suppose this defines another issue besides dropped rubbish we have in society days.

Today’s count was
Plastics bottles 29
Glass bottles 47
Cans 47
Coffee cups 12
Bottle caps plastic 51
Bottle caps 75
Small hard plastics 62
