Lovely to see everyone considering the hot weather and great work cleaning up in the heat and supporting Clean up Australia Day! There were 22 volunteers on the beach along the section at Beaumaris Yacht Club.

 

In total we collected roughly 42 kg of rubbish, the equivalent of 13 full bags of litter, including roughly 670 cigarette butts, 17 glass bottles, 3 plastic bottles and 18 cans.

Other items included a thong, bottle tops, straws, polystyrene, wood, a brick, a used comdom (!), fishing gear/line, dog poo and pieces of metal. 

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