A nice relaxing day down at Mentone Beach today with 13 volunteers on the hunt for rubbish. The beach was pretty clear of rubbish with the majority of it being collected from around the vegetation. This thick vegetation does a great job in stopping the litter before it gets to the beach. It's still dissapointing to find large amounts of rubbish each month
but at least there is more discussion now on how to improve things.
Today we collected 10 bags of rubbish weighing 33.7 kgs including 60 bottles and cans.
thanks everyone,
Paul
