Ocean Crusaders from Queensland came down again with their special boat to do a rubbish survey and clean up along the Yarra River and the mount of the Moonee Ponds Creek where it empties into the Yarra.  People from BeachPatrol helped collect and sort the rubbish out including counting all the bottles and cans.  Ian from Ocean Crusaders said of all the places had had cleaned this week he was here was the worst.  During that week approx 3300 bottles and cans were collected off the river banks.
