Great to see so many of you last weekend on what was a beautiful morning! We had 39 volunteers helping clean up the beach and foreshore. Everyone did a great job. We had quite a lot of litter collected so well done everyone for your efforts.

In total we collected roughly 70 kg of rubbish, the equivalent of 24 full bags of litter, including roughly 540 cigarette butts, 29 glass bottles, 21 plastic bottles and 28 cans.

Other items included thongs, clothing, tiles, rope, bottle tops, straws, tent bag, 6 pack rings, polystyrene and dog poo bags. 

Cigarette butts, plastic fragments and bottles were the most commonly collected items.
