There were 29 of us at the beach clean yesterday at Black Rock, south of Half Moon Bay. Great to see lots of families participating and enjoying the sunshine and calm conditions.

Everyone did a brilliant job yesterday, which is evident from the amount of rubbish collected; 30 bags of litter in total and roughly 85 Kg in weight (due to some large and heavy items e.g. a tyre, umbrella, wood, clothing and glass bottles).

Most common items were; nurdles, small fragments of different plastics and wrappers, cigarette butts (roughly 860 collected) and polystyrene. Recyclables; we collected 25 glass bottles, 18 plastic bottles and 15 cans. We also found a plastic crate, rope, bricks, gas canisters, bottle tops, adhesive padding & filler foam, lolly sticks, straws & fishing gear (lures, line & part of a rod).

Thanks again to all those that helped!
