On a chilly August morning over 30 volunteers came out to clean the Sandridge Beach.  At this time of the year (winter) the winds are predominately off shore hence there is little litter washing in onto the beach.  Plus there are next to no beach goers, so the main part of the beach is quite clean as well.  

Still 70 bottles and cans and 12 bags of rubbish were removed.  
Still no sign of the government doing the right thing for the state by the bringing in of a Cash for Containers scheme to rid us of the blight of littered bottles and cans we expereince every day.
