Two of the 3207 BeachPatrol members, Julie and Luke were horrified by the rubbish washed on to the Port Melb beach Friday night after a large rain storm.  It washed out of a near a storm water drain then washed back onto the beach.   An absolutely disgusting collection of all drink containers and some other plastic.   Showing very clearly why Victoria needs a Cash for Container scheme.   Yet there is no discussion of it from State.
